All I wanna do when I wake up in the morning is see your eyes
Rosanna, Rosanna
I never thought that a girl like you could ever care for me
Rosanna

All I wanna 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 yeah
Now she's gone and I have to say
Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna yeah
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 wanna take is a night 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, Rosanna yeah
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, Rosanna yeah
Meet you all the way, meet you all the way, Rosanna yeah

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

    General Comment^ yup. Anyone know why its used so much in Scrubs? well I can only remember twice, but they were random bit that could have used any song, but chose to use Rosanna. My guess is Bill Lawrence must really like ot or something.

    General CommentI really dig that show burntfire. Too funny.

    If I recall correctly, the keyboard player dated Rosanna Arquette for a while and dumped him for some Hollywood big-shot. Strangely enough though, one of the other guys wrote the song, not the keyboard player. Good song, though. I always enjoy hearing the little musical intricasies that accompany the song, but not pervade it.

    General Commenti really like the part when they go all softer for
    "Not quite a year since she went away, Rosanna yeah
    Now she's gone and I have to say"

    then they go
    MEET YOU ALL THE WAY, ROSANNA YEAHHH

    to bad she never did.

    General CommentRosanna Arquette was dating Steve Porcaro, backup keyboards and song composer. David Paich, lead keyboards, wrote this song about them.

    Another song, In Your Eyes, by Peter Gabriel was written about her as well. Damn, is she a heartbreaker or what?
