ARTIST: Pink Floyd
TITLE: Learning to Fly
Lyrics and Chords

Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reel
A fatal attraction is holding me fast
How can I escape this irresistible grasp

/ G - - - / Em - - EmD / :

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted
Just an earth-bound misfit, I

/ C - Am - / F - / C D G - - - /

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
No navigator to find my way home
Unladen, empty and turned to stone

A soul in tension that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try

/ C - Am - / F - C - /


Above the planet on a wing and a prayer
My grubby halo, a vapor trail in the empty air
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss
