Ali Slaight – 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 wind swept field
Standing alone my sense reeled
A fatal attraction holding me fast, how
Can I escape this irresistable grasp?
Can't keep my eyes from the circling sky
Tongue-tied & twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I tought I thought of everything
No navigator to guide my way home
Unladened, empty and turned to stone

A soul in tension that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try
Can't keep my eyes from the -circling- skies
Tongue-tied & twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Gould blow this soul right through the roof of the night

There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss
Can't keep my mind from the circling sky
Tongue-tied & twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
