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 wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Every man 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 that blind belief can we ever find the truth

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal our hearts
Every man 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

    Song for world peace and happiness to all man on earth! I hope that all of us wishing it too and step aside for selfishness and wish only for our own good. We must think to our common good even others are not but lets start into our self to think everybody's good. Amen!

    It means they want eternal peace and happiness for everybody on earth. The allusion to the innocence of children means that every child is born innocently and beautifully, not understanding what discrimination is.

    It means to me that when i see the big picture i realize that everyone on earth has deep needs that are worth every effort we or the powers that be make to meet those needs.

    Because i'm grown up, i don't need all the things i wanted. All the toys... I didn't need them. Now, i just want world peace. To me, all i want is everyone happy. (:
