  • Hot sun, dancin' on the river
    We'd sit on the bank and watch the world roll by
    Our feet in the water, she'd press her lips to mine
    We were so long on love but short on time
    She could be honeymoon sweet and a little wild
    And she was mine for a little while

    I laugh every time when I think about us
    We sent the summer out in style
    She's gone but she left me with a smile
    Cause she was mine for a little while

    We'd take a drive and park down next to airport road
    Put the seats back and watch the planes leave town
    She always said nobody's strong enough to tie her down
    But I wasn't lookin' for that anyhow
    I knew she'd leave but I didn't know when
    It matters, but didn't back then

    I laugh when I start to think about us
    We sent the summer out in style
    She's gone but she left me with a smile
    ?Cause she was mine for a little while

    I keep seeing pictures now of me and her
    And those summer nights
    My minds filled with her, oh and it's alright

    I laugh when I start to think about us
    We sent the summer out in style
    She's gone but she left me with a smile
    ?Cause she was mine for a little while Writer/s: JERRY VANDIVER, PHIL VASSAR, STEVE MANDILE
