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

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
(repeat Chorus)

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

(repeat Chorus)
