Pink Floyd – Learning To Fly

[Intro]
G    A9+7  G   G/F#   Em (h/o)  Em (h/o)  D/F#   2x

[Verse 1]
G                     A9+7  G                    G/F#
    Into the distance,         a ribbon of black
Em                              (h/o) Em         D/F#
    Stretched to the point of no turning back
G                      A9+7   G                     G/F#
    A flight of fancy          On a windswept field
Em                      (h/o) Em        D/F#
    Standing alone my senses reel.
G                      A9+7  G                      G/F#
    A fatal attraction         Is holding me fast.  How
Em     (h/o) Em                          D/F#
can I escape this irresistible grasp?

[Chorus]
C/G                             Am
    Can't keep my eyes from the   circling skies
F                                   C           D
   Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit, I.
G   A9+7   G  G/F#  Em  (h/o) Em   D/F#

[Verse 2]
G                 A9+7  G                         G/F#
   Ice is forming,        On the tips of my wings
Em                                                 D/F#
   Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
G                A9+7  G                     G/F#
   No navigator,         To find my way home
Em                                     D/F#
   Unladen, empty and turned to stone.

[Chorus]
C/G                           Am
    A soul in tension, that's learning to fly
F                             C
   Condition grounded, but de-termined to try
C/G                             Am
    Can't keep my eyes from the   circling skies
F                                  C           D
  Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit, I

[Break]
G     A9+7   G     G/F#    Em (h/o)     Em    D/F#   2x

[Verse 3]
G
   Above the planet on a wing and a prayer
Em
   My grubby halo, a vapor trail in the empty air
G
   Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Em
   Out of the corner of my watering eye
G
   A dream unthreatened by the morning light;
Em
   Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

[Chorus]
C/G                         Am
There's no sensation to com-pare with this
    F                   C               D
Sus-pended animation, a state of bliss.
C/G                              Am
     Can't keep my eyes from the  circling skies
F                                  C           D
  Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit, I

[Outro]
G     A9+7   G    G/F#    Em (h/o)    Em (h/o)   D/F#
(5x  while fading)
