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 war would never start,
And time would heal all hearts,
Everyone would have a friend,
That 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 my blind belief
Can we ever find the truth.

No more lives torn apart,
That war would never start,
And time would heal all hearts,
Everyone would have a friend,
That right would always win,
And love would never end.

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

* Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee.

Uh -uh, uh-uh, uh…..
