For Rosanna
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 
                     F                  Bb      C
This is for Rosanna, sweet girl of mine,
                        F               Bb            C
A song for the baby who changed my life,
                   F              Bb         C7
I'll never forget when I saw you first,
   Dm                  Am/C          Bb
I thought that my heart would burst,
              C7            F
With the love that I have.

     C                  F             Bb      C
As I watch you sleeping in here tonight,
                            F               Bb         C
And I hear your breathing so soft and light,
                 F                B             C7
I cannot believe all the things that I feel,
             Dm       Am/C   Bb
When I hold you next to me,
            C7            F 
It's the love that I have.

F                   Bb        F - C
Oh how my heart it is shining,
F                   Bb       F  - C
Oh how my heart it is shining, 
F                   Bb       F - C   Dm - Am/C 
Oh how my heart is shining through,
Bb             C7            F
   With the love that I have.

        C                F                 Bb         C
And as you are growing from baby to child,
                    F                   Bb         C
I share the wonders that are in your eyes,
                   F                 Bb         C7
And I am amazed at the way you change,
         Dm     Am/C    Bb
All according to the plan,
              C7            F
And the love that I have.

And when you are older you will go away,
You'll see injustice and you'll see pain,
But never forget that I'm always there,
Like a shadow by your side,
With the love that I have.

Dm    Am    Bb/F  F   Gm           F           C
Oh__ my__ love, you have your mother's eyes,
                   Dm  Am       Bb/F    F   Gm            F           C        
And when I see_ you___ laugh, you have your mother's smile,
                    B                C
And you are mine all of my life,
               Bb                  C
You are mine, all of my love,
               Bb                         C
You are mine, blood of my blood,
                Dm - Dm/C - Bb - C - F - Bb - F - Bb
You are mine.

F                   Bb         C
Oh how my heart it is shining, 
F                   Bb         C
Oh how my heart it is shining,   
F                   B        C         Dm - Am/C - Bb
Oh how my heart it is shining through,
Bbmaj7      C             F        
   With the love that I have.
