Grown-Up Christmas List

Play

Do you remember me
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies
Well I'm all grown up now
But still need help somehow
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream

So here's my life long 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 the heart
Everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
Ohhhh
This is my grown-up Christmas list

As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree
But Heaven surely knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal
The hurting human soul

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal the heart
Everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
Ohhhh
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

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal the heart
Everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal the heart
Everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
Ohhhhh
This is my grown-up Christmas list
This is my only lifelong wish
This is my grown-up Christmas list
