About Fly on the Wall

"Fly on the Wall" is a song recorded by American recording artist Miley Cyrus for her second studio album, Breakout (2008). It was released on November 4, 2008 as the third and final single from the album. The song's lyrics have been interpreted in a number of ways, such as a description of an abusive boyfriend. In actuality, Cyrus says the song describes paparazzi and their extensive personal privacy invasions. The song received critical praise, with several critics claiming it defied teen pop expectations and was Breakout's best track. Despite reaching number eighty-four on the United States chart Billboard Hot 100, "Fly on the Wall" performed better commercially in various European regions. "Fly on the Wall" reached its highest international peak on the UK Singles Chart, at number sixteen. The single's music video was directed by Philip Andelman and premiered on FNMTV. The "Thriller" inspired video takes place mainly in a parking garage in which Cyrus encounters and attempts to escape the paparazzi. Cyrus promoted the song through several venues, including a performance on her second headlining tour, the Wonder World Tour, that incorporated a short segment of the "Thriller" dance. Cyrus also performed the song in the Gypsy Heart Tour. The song was premiered before its official release on May 4, 2008 at the Disney Channel Games.

You don't understand what it is
That makes me tick, but you wish you did
You always second guess
Wonder if I'll say yes 
But you just lose out every time

If you only knew what I talked about
When I'm with my friends, just hanging out
Then you'd have the inside scoop on what to say, what to do
That way when you play the game
Baby, you could never lose

Don't you wish that you could be a 
Fly on the wall?
A creepy little, sneaky little 
Fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a 
Fly on the wall?

You'd love to know the things I do
When I'm with my friends, and not with you
You always second guess
Wonder if there's other guys I'm flirting with
You should know by now

If you were my boyfriend, I'd be true to you
If I make a promise, I'm coming through
Don't you wish that you could see me 
Every second of the day?
That way you would have no doubt
That baby, I would never stray

Don't you wish that you could be a
Fly on the wall?
A creepy little, sneaky little 
Fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a 
Fly on the wall?

A little communication
Well, that'll go a long way
You're getting misinformation
Too much hearsay, hearsay
And what I say is
Come a little closer
And what I'm gonna say is

Don't Ya?
Don't Ya?
Don't Ya?
Don't ya wish you were a?
Hey

Don't you wish that you could be a 
Fly on the wall?
A creepy little, sneaky little 
Fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a 
Fly on the wall?
