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

tom petty and jeff lynne wrote this,really sounds totally floyd
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.
Wrong Learning to Fly, Pandora
Love this song, but I know for a fact that it wasn't written by Tom Petty.
Awesome tune....
This song is all about my life.
Love of.....never another..... . . . . !
The best

I highly doubt jeff lynne wrote a song for pink Floyd.
mankeyrevooh
good song
Pandora is retarded under the copywrite it says Tom petty. They need to get there s**t together I don't listen to an add after every song for this bs
Wow!
Super music! ;) Follow me please... if you dare to discover... greatness (dramatic hush falls over the crowd).
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
My favorite Pink Floyd song!
Awesome CD !!!!
One of my favorites!!!
Trick question. Any song with David's wailing guitar is the best. Love that strat.
Love learning to fly, but comfortably numb gets my vote.
mezgola
It sounds like an obe to me.
If u could listen to one tune the rest of ur life, learning to fly or comfortably numb?
Best to fly than to crawl over the walls. . .
This is the first song that made me fall in love with them!! :D
One of my favorite Pink Floyd songs. :D
Terminal velocity...a s k Charley Sheen bout his experience.. .
Wrong. It's definetly misfit.
I think it's distance not misfit
Tounge tied and twisted, just an earth bound misfit...I
Best Gilmour album
And that was in 1987!!!
I got to see this concert in L.A. twice! Didn't feel the need to see any other concert after Floyd?
ruky47
I know that is without Roger' input, I can't imagine if it was with.
I think that learning to fly was the first hit by the rogerless Floyd.
This cut actually inspired me to get my pilots license...
AMAZING
excellent
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies. Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit. I
