My Grown Up Christmas List Lyrics

by Aretha Franklin

Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee
And I wrote to you with childhood fantasies

That wars would never start
And time would heal, heal

And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown up Christmas list

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
Time, time would heal
