Toto - Rosanna (Official Music Video)




"Rosanna" is a song written by David Paich and performed by the American rock band Toto, the opening track and the first single from their 1982 album Toto IV. This song won the Record of the Year Grammy Award in the 1983 presentations. "Rosanna" was also nominated for the Song of the Year award.


The song was written by David Paich, who has said that the song is based on numerous girls he had known. As a joke, the band members initially played along with the common assumption that the song was based on Rosanna Arquette, who was dating Toto keyboard player Steve Porcaro at the time and coincidentally had the same name.


Arquette herself played along with the joke, commenting in an interview that the song was about "my showing up at 4 a.m., bringing them juice and beer at their sessions



Lyrics



All I want to do when I wake up in the morning is see you eyes

Rosanna, Rosanna

Never thought that a girl like you could ever care for me, Rosanna


All I want to do in the middle of the evening is hold you tight

Rosanna, Rosanna

I didn't know you were looking for more than I could ever be


Not quite a year since she went away, Rosanna

Now she's gone and I have to say


Meet you all the way, meet you all the way

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna, yeah

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna, yeah


I can see your face still shining through the window on the other side

Rosanna, Rosanna

I didn't know that a girl like you could make me feel so sad, Rosanna


All I want to tell you is now you'll never ever have to compromise

Rosanna, Rosanna

I never thought that losing you could ever hurt so bad


Not quite a year since she went away, Rosanna, yeah

Now she's gone and I have to say


Meet you all the way, meet you all the way

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna, yeah

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna, yeah


Not quite a year since she went away, Rosanna, yeah

Now she's gone and I have to say


Meet you all the way, meet you all the way

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna, yeah

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna, yeah


Meet you all the way, meet you all the way

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna, yeah

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way

Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna, yeah
