I know this is a little late but here it is :

 

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,
Yet 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.

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

What is this illusion called the innocence of youth?
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth
(there’d be).

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, oh
This is my grown up christmas list.

This is my only life long wish,this is my grown up christmas list.

Quite possibly one of the greatest Christmas songs ever written. We could use this now more than ever before.
