My Grown-Up Christmas List

Foster, Thompson and Jenner

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

CHORUS No more lives torn apart

That wars would never start

And time would heal all hearts

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 believed

The grandest sight to see

Was something lovely

Wrapped beneath our tree

Well heaven surely knows

That packages and bows

Can never heal a hurting human soul



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.

Everyone would have a friend;

And right would always win;

And love would never end.

This is my grown-up Christmas list.
