Learning To Fly

Lyrics

Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled

I had seen PINK FLOYD in 1990...In Giant Stadium. They were awsome!! Classic music that will never die in my book!!

There isn't 1 song in the Floyd catalog that doesn't include at least 1 of Waters, Gilmour, Wright, Barrett or Mason as a song writer.

Lol...it was Tom Pettys song Learning to Fly that Jeff Lynne and he wrote. How they confused them I'm not sure.......& I'm glad the lyrics are back :)

Not their best album but a damn fine song

I liked the lyrics!
Also, I contacted them, it's a licensing thing, not your opinion that caused them to take the lyrics down. :(

20 years later I still remember them doing this on their last tour, and them cranking out the laser lights during the breakdown part where you hear the pilot relaying messages to the tower. Sure the Pink Floyd Laser Light Show is one thing, seeing PINK FLOYD using lasers at their own show is a whole other level of awesome!

Thank you for my "pink fix" Pandora. Pink Floyd has a song for every memorable moment of my life.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you do not post this comment on at least 3 songs you will die in 2 days. Now that you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works!!

Pink Floyd great band. Great music

They have this song confused with a Tom petty song called learning to fly.

Pandora having noted Tom Petty as being the one who wrote these lyrics is like me saying Joseph Smith is the one who wrote the Christian bible... the writers of these lyrics are as follows, ☆David Gilmour★, An t h o n y Moore, Bob Ezrin, Jon Carin,

why does it say it was written by Jeff Lynne and Tom petty?

This album was released when I was experimentin g with large doses of LSD. It tapped deep into my subconscious and I'll never forget those trips. Great for hallucinatio n s for a young man seeking answers.

The song was primarily written by David Gilmour. It describes Gilmour's thoughts on flying, for which he has a passion (being a licensed pilot with multiple ratings), though it has also been interpreted as a metaphor for beginning something new, experiencing a radical change in life, or, more specifically , Gilmour's feelings about striking out as the new leader of Pink Floyd - Wikipedia
