"Summertime" as written by Richard Sambora, John Shanks and Jon Bon Jovi....
It's the time of year with things growing wild
Love's found underneath the stars
Kids are playing in the backyard now
Catching fireflies in a jar
I am sitting on my back porch
And I'm wondering where you are
And if you look at the moon like I do
Does it break your heart
Does it break your heart
When you think about me
Do you remember to forget
Summertime

I go back there in my mind
Kissing underneath the moonlight
Discovering things we thought we'd never find
When I was yours and baby you were mine
Summertime

I thought I saw you a couple months ago
At the airport boarding a plane
I couldn't move I didn't know what to do
And you took my breath away
I heard she's wearing a shiny diamond ring
I guess you're finally moving on
I hope you're happy when she's looking up at you
And I know it might be wrong
Yeah it might be wrong
When I think about you I just can't forget
Summertime

I go back there in my mind
Kissing underneath the moonlight
Discovering things we thought we'd never find
When I was yours and baby you were mine
Oh summertime

Summertime
I go back there in my mind
And oh how it gets me every time

All the flowers growing wild
Kissing underneath the moonlight
Discovering things we thought we'd never find
When I was yours and baby you were mine
Summertime

I am sitting on my back-porch
And I'm wondering where you are

    General CommentI thought I saw you a couple months ago
    At the airport boarding a plane
    I couldn't move I didn't know what to do
    And you took my breath away

    I really like these lines. They ring true - when you're switching planes at a hub, it's possible you could run into anyone you've ever known.

    The mixture of fear and longing in "couldn't move" and "took my breath away" is pretty apt too.
