My Grown-Up Christmas List

My Grown-Up Christmas List

Do you remember me?
I sat upon your knee.
I wrote to you
with childhood fantasies.

Well, I’m all grown up now,
can you still help somehow.
I’m not a child,
but my heart still can dream.

So here’s my lifelong wish,
my grown up Christmas list.
Not for myself,
but for a world in need.

No more lives torn apart,
that wars would never start,
and time would heal all hearts.

And everyone would have a friend,
and right would always win,
and love would never end.
This is my grown up Christmas list.

As children we believe
the grandest sight to see
was something lovely
wrapped beneath the tree.

But heaven surely knows
that packages and bows
can never heal a hurting human soul.

No more lives torn apart,
that wars would never start,
and time would heal our hearts

And everyone would have a friend,
and right would always win,
and love would never end.
This is my grown up Christmas list.

What is this illusion
called the innocence of youth?
Maybe only in our blind belief
can we ever find the truth.
Ohhh –

No more lives torn apart,
(No more torn apart)
that wars would never start,
(Never start)
and time would heal all hearts.
(Oh, hearts)

Everyone would have a friend,
(One would have a friend)
and right would always win,
(Would always win)
and love would never end.
(Never, never end, no)

This is my grown up Christmas list.
This is my only lifelong wish.
This is my grown up Christmas list.
