Verse 1:
Well I started out
down a dirty road
Started out
all alone

Verse 2:
And the sun went down
as I crossed the hill
And the town lit up
the world got still

Chorus 1:
I'm learning to fly
but I ain't got wings
Coming down 
is the hardest thing

Verse 3:
Well the good old days
may not return
And the rocks might melt
and the sea may burn

Chorus 1

Solo (just repeat the intro)
Verse 4:
Well some say life
will beat you down
Break your heart
steal your crown

Verse 5:
So I started out
for God knows where
I guess I'll know 
when I get there

Chorus 2:
I'm learning to fly
around the clouds
What goes up
must come down

Chorus to outro:
I'm learning to fly
but I ain't got wings
Coming down 
is the hardest thing
I'm learning to fly
around the clouds
What goes up
must come down
I'm learning to fly (two measures)
I'm learning to fly (two measures)

(end on C)
