Grown Up Christmas

As I was listening to the radio on TV, the song Grown Up Christmas List started to play.  There are many versions of it but the one that was playing was by Monica.

The words were soothing to me.   (I’ve added a link in case you want to download the song to hear it.)

Platinum Christmas

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

(Refrain) No more lives torn apart
That wars will never start
And time will heal all hearts
And every man would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown up Christmas list

May kindness rule our lives
Not just the strong survive
Sweet tears for all the thousand years gone by
This is the world I pray
We will all share some day
Help me begin by reaching out my hand.


Why is this illusion called the innocence of youth?
Maybe only in the blind belief
Can we ever find the truth


This is my grown up Christmas list
