LEARNING TO FLY
Pink Floyd
(Gilmour, Moore, Ezrin, Carin)
 GA/GGGmaj7Em7DGA/GGGmaj7
                          Into the distance, a ribbon of black
 Em7D
 Stretched to the point of no turning back 
 GA/GGGmaj7
 A flight of fancy on a windswept field
 Em7D
 Standing alone my senses reeled 
 GA/GGGmaj7
 A fatal attraction is holding me fast, how
 Em7D
 Can I escape this irresistible grasp? 
 CEm/BAmG
 Can't keep my eyes from the circling sky 
 FCD
 Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
 GA/GGGmaj7GA/GGGmaj7
                  Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
 Em7D
 Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
 GA/GGGmaj7
 No navigator to guide my way home
 Em7D
 Unladened, empty and turned to stone 
 CEm/BAmG
 A soul in tension that's learning to fly 
 FC
 Condition grounded but determined to try
 Em/BAmG
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies 
 FCD
 Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
 FAm7D9DG
               Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
 Em7
 My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air,
 G
 Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
 Em7
 Out of the corner of my watering eye
 G
 A dream unthreatened by the morning light
 Em7
 Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night
 CEm/BAmG
 There's no sensation to compare with this 
 FC
Suspended animation, a state of bliss
 Em/BAmG
Can't keep my mind from the circling skies 
 FCD
 Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
 GA/GGGmaj7Em7D
