Sample Lyrics:

(Chorus): "I'm looking to the sky to save me/Looking for a sign of life/Looking for something help me burn out bright."

Angel Connection:

'Learn to Fly' begins with lead Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl asking listeners to tell angels that he needs help finding some inspiration in life: "Run and tell all of the angels/This could take all night/Think I need a devil to help me/Get things right."

The song continues with Grohl singing that if he can just "learn to fly" like angels do, then maybe he'll find the inspiration he's been seeking.

Later, Grohl sings that if listeners join him on his search for inspiration, they can "run and tell the angels that everything's alright."
