My Grown-Up Christmas List

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

[Verse 2]
Well, I’m all grown up now
And still need help somehow
I’m not a child
But my heart still can dream

[Verse 3]
So here’s my lifelong wish
My grown-up Christmas list
Not for myself
But for a world in need

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 4]
As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree

[Verse 5]
But heaven only knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal
A hurting human soul

[Chorus]
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

[Break]
What is this illusion called the innocence of youth
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth

[Chorus]
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
