  • 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 Writer/s: CHRIS DEGARMO, GEOFF TATE
