Lauren Alaina – Grown Up Christmas List

Op 10 december brengt Lauren Alaina haar kerstsingle uit. Grown Up Christmas List is al een oudere song van haar maar komt nu op het album A Very Special Christmas waarop diverse artiesten zingen voor het goede doel met name de Special Olympics Winter Games. In 2011 zong ze met grote klasse deze song tijdens de CMT Country Christmas.

Songtekst :

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 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
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end, oh
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 only 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, oh
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

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, oh
This is my grown up
This is my grown up
This is my grown up christmas list, yeah, yeah
