LEARNING TO FLY
Pink Floyd
(Gilmour, Moore, Ezrin, Carin)
[G] [A/G] [G] [Gmaj7] [Em7] [D]  
[G]Into the distan[A/G]ce, a [G]ribbon of [Gmaj7]black
[Em7]Stretched to the point of no turning back[D]
[G]A flight of fan[A/G]cy on a [G]windswept [Gmaj7]field
[Em7]Standing alone my senses reeled[D]
[G]A fatal attractio[A/G]n is [G]holding me f[Gmaj7]ast, how
[Em7]Can I escape this irresistible grasp?[D]
[C]Can't keep my eyes [Em/B]from the cir[Am]cling sky[G]
[F]Tongue-tied and twisted just an [C]earth-bound [D]misfit, I
[G] [A/G] [G] [Gmaj7]  
[G]Ice is form[A/G]ing on the [G]tips of my [Gmaj7]wings
[Em7]Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of ev[D]erything
[G]No navigato[A/G]r to [G]guide my way ho[Gmaj7]me
[Em7]Unladened, empty and turned to stone[D]
[C]A soul in tensi[Em/B]on that's [Am]learning to fly[G]
[F]Condition grounded but deter[C]mined to try
Can't keep my eyes [Em/B]from the cir[Am]cling skies[G]
[F]Tongue-tied and twisted just an [C]earth-bound [D]misfit, I
[F] [Am7] [D9] [D]  
[G]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
[C]There's no sensati[Em/B]on to [Am]compare with this[G]
Sus[F]pended animation, a [C]state of bliss
Can't keep my mind [Em/B]from the cir[Am]cling skies[G]
[F]Tongue-tied and twisted just an [C]earth-bound [D]misfit, I
[G] [A/G] [G] [Gmaj7] [Em7] [D]
