Learning To Fly Lyrics

Play "Learning To Fly"
on Amazon Music

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

A fatal attraction
Is holding me fast
How can I escape
This irresistable...

    I guess I am the only one who thinks Carlos Castaneda. Is where I went the first time I heard it. The video convinced me.

    The video for this song depicts a story I read in Elementary school about a native American boy who ties eagle feathers to his arms and leaps off of a cliff. As he falls he becomes an eagle and flies away. The band Yes has a similar video for "Owner of a lonely heart",except it's a businessman jumping off of a skyscraper and turning into an eagle. That being said, I think the original motive for the song was drummer Nick Mason's love of flying. Watch the Pink Floyd video "Point me at the sky" and you"ll see what I mean. Thankyou and Good Day! signed Jay W. Russell

    It's a persons thoughts, as they're falling to their death.

    David Gilmour wrote this Because at the time He was taking Flying lessons (Or it might have been Mason taking flying lessons I Forget) and he wrote what it felt like flying through the sky.
