[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
Susâ€"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)

About the artist behind Learning To Fly Acoustic:

Pink Floyd are an English rock band that initially earned recognition for their psychedelic or space rock music, and, as they evolved, for their progressive rock music. They are known for philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, innovative cover art, and elaborate live shows. One of rock music's most successful acts, the group have sold over 200 million albums worldwide[1][2] including 74.5 million albums in the United States alone.[3]

Pink Floyd had moderate mainstream success and were one of the most popular bands in the London underground music scene in the late 1960s as a psychedelic band led by Syd Barrett; however, Barrett's erratic behaviour eventually forced his colleagues to replace him with guitarist and singer David Gilmour. After Barrett's departure, singer and bass player Roger Waters gradually became the dominant and driving force in the group in the late-1970s, until his eventual departure from the group in 1985. The band recorded several albums, achieving worldwide success with The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), and The Wall (1979). In 1985, Waters declared Pink Floyd "a spent force", but the remaining members, led by Gilmour, continued recording and touring under the name Pink Floyd. Although they were unsuccessfully sued by Waters for rights to the name, they again enjoyed worldwide success with A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987) and The Division Bell (1994). Eventually they reached a settlement out of court with Waters allowing them use of the name. Waters performed with the band for the first time in 24 years on 2 July 2005 at the London Live 8 concert.
