Grown up Christmas list…

Christmas presents

Which is your favourite Christmas song? There are a few that I like but this year, my favourite has got to be this one by Michael Buble (Words & music by David Forster and Linda Thompson). The lyrics go like this:

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 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
This is my only lifelong wish
This is my grown-up Christmas list

Don’t you think that should be everyone’s Christmas wish in this world of ours so pathetically torn apart by hate, strife and wars? Do click the link and listen to it. I’m sure you’re gonna like it too… Joy to the world, love and peace to all men!

Merry Christmas
