My Grown Up Christmas List Lyrics:

Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee,
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies;
Well, I’m all grown up now
And still need 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, no…
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 only knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal a heart-ached human soul…

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, no…
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 all hearts,
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end, no
This is my grown up Christmas list
This is my only lifelong wish
This is my grown up Christmas list
