"Jetstream" as written by Jez Williams, Andy Williams and Jimi / Goodwin....
Tall machines wait in line
So still lost in time
Jets turn and make no sound
Returning to the solid ground
People drift out of time
Watching numbers turn
Seems that I've been waiting here forever

Jetstream
Stormy seas
Cast adrift on a troubled dream
I've seen the sleeping ships at night
I will meet you there
The roar of the engine in the air
(Jetstream)

Leave the things you don't need
And the ones that you don't love
Faith and hope
Keeps our minds together
Your heart's left the ground tonight
Scattered lost in light
Seems that I've been waiting here forever

Jetstream
Carbon seas
Cast adrift on a troubled dream
I've seen the silent jets at night
I will meet you there
The roar of the engine high in the air
(Jetstream)

Sleeping ships in the night
Shining steel lost in time
Jets turn, make no sound
Returning to the safer ground
People running outta time
Lost in love, last in line
Seems I've waited here forever

Jetstream
Stormy seas
Cast adrift on a troubled dream
I see the silent jets at night
I will take you there
The roar of the engine pollutes the air

Jetstream

Jetstream

    General CommentThis song is so good. I love that the twins usually have a song each on albums, but not just as a token effort, their voices really give a good contrast through the album.

    As for meanings, I reckon it's a scene waiting at an airport watching the planes coming in and waiting for a loved one to arrive. Must be a coastal airport if they're talking about stormy seas and ships aswell!

    The "leave the things you don't need/ and the ones you don't love" would say to me that whoever is on the plane, this journey is a permanent one rather than coming back off a holiday

    General CommentThe band have said that this is their attempt at writing an alternate score to play over the end credits of Blade Runner. You can see how it all fits in with the ideas on show in that film.
