Learning to Fly  Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd - Learning to Fly
Arranged by Kilrog
[G5] [Gsus2] [GM7] [Em7] [D/A] [C] [CM7/B] [Am] [F] 

(Drum ad-lib)
[G5]Into the distan[Gsus2]ce, a [G5]ribbon of black [GM7]
[Em7]Stretched to the point of no turning back [D/A]
[G5]A flight of fancy[Gsus2] on a [G5]wind-swept field [GM7]
[Em7]Standing alone my senses reeled [D/A]
[G5]A fatal attrac[Gsus2]tion [G5]holding me fast, [GM7]How
[Em7]Can I escape this irresistible grasp? [D/A]
[C]Can't keep my eyes [CM7/B]from the [Am]circling sky
[F]Tongue-tied and twisted, just an [C]earth-bound [D/A]misfit, I
(Solo ala Tim Renwick)
[G5] [Gsus2] [G5] [GM7] [Em7] [D/A] [G] 

[G5]Ice is forming[Gsus2] on the [G5]tips of my wings [GM7]
[Em7]Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of every[D/A]thing
[G5]No navigat[Gsus2]or to [G5]guide my way home [GM7]
[Em7]Unladened, empty and turned to stone [D]
[C]A soul in tension[CM7/B] that's [Am]learning to fly
[F]Condition grounded but de[C]termined to try
Can't keep my eyes [CM7/B]from the [Am]circling skies
[F]Tongue-tied and twisted just an [C]earth-bound [D/A]misfit, I
[G]Above the planet on a wing and a prayer [GM7]
[Em7]My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air
[G]Across the clouds I see my shadow fly [GM7]
[Em7]Out of the corner of my watering eye
[G]A dream unthreatened by the morning light [GM7]
[Em7]Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night [D]
[C]There's no sensation [CM7/B]to com[Am]pare with this
[F]Suspended animation, a [C]state of bliss
Can't keep my mind [CM7/B]from the [Am]circling sky
[F]Tongue-tied and twisted just an [C]earth-bound [D]misfit, I [G]
(Ad-lib Solo over twice repeating verse progression)
[G5] [Gsus2] [G5] [GM7] [Em7] [D/A] [G] 

(Drum ad-lib until end)
