Every time I leave you say you won't be there
And you're always there
Every time I cry your name at night
You pull close and say it's alright
I look in your eyes, just like the rain
Washing me, rain wash over me
Touching your face, I feel the heat of your heartbeat
Echo in my head like a scream
What you do to me!
Waited so long I can't wait another day without you

Jet city woman
It's a long way, home to my
Jet city woman
I see her face everywhere, can't get her out of my mind

Whenever I'm alone I'm thinking
There's a part missing from my life
Wonder where I'd be without your love
Holding me together now I'm
Watching the time tick, tick away
Face grows longer every day
Fortunes are lost on the women I've seen
But without you I can't breathe, you're the air to me!
Waited so long I can't wait another day without you?

Jet city woman got to find my way home to her
Jet city woman I see her face everywhere I look!
Jet city woman just a thousand miles and I'll be there
Jet city woman, to make the clouds go away
Time for some blue sky!

Waited so long now the plane's delayed an hour
Reminds me of all our days apart
Hold on, just a little longer

Jet city woman Wonder where I'd be, you're the air to me
Jet city woman Eyes like the rain, rain down on me
Jet city woman No more nights alone
I'm almost home now Jet city woman
Close my eyes, I'm there in my jet city, jet city

    General CommentIt's about being away on the road and having a girl back home I guess, I dunno, Tate is a wondeful song writer it's probably more complex than that.

    Great riffs, and a awesome opening fill. And Tates vocals...God...This guy has probably the most impressive range in metal, the man can sing.

    General CommentSeattle is the Jet City. See wiki for that one. The song is about being away from his wife or girlfriend. I actually thought it could be about a woman he had in a certain city; a mistress it is tough to get away to, but given the band is from Seattle, it would also make sense if his wife were the Jet City Woman. I've spent the past 6 years jetting around Asia and can totally relate. Exotic locations and 5-star hotels and all you want to do is get back to someone.

    General CommentActually, at the last performance Ryche had at the Moore in Seattle, Geoff Tate said that this song was specifically about his wife, his travels when on the road and how much he wanted to return home to her while touring.

    General CommentI find this comment above hilarious "I've spent the past 6 years jetting around Asia and can totally relate. Exotic locations and 5-star hotels and all you want to do is get back to someone". Wow we're so impressed by your peacocking. Im sure if you had the money to stay in 5-star hotels and "jet around" for 6 years you might just find a couple of bucks for a flight back home pal!!!!!
