Clay Aiken – May Kindness Rule Our Lives

My Grown-Up Christmas List has been sung by many popular artists. It was originally recorded by Natalie Cole. Recently, it has been recorded by Amy Grant, Kelly Clarkson, Michael Buble, Barbra Streisand and Clay Aiken.

The song is about an adult who has a visit with Santa Claus. He does not ask Santa for anything material for Christmas. His wish is for only good things for humanity.

Today, as we listen to My Grown-Up Christmas List, we will celebrate the talents of many people. We are featuring four special people who have a gift that they share with the world.

  1. Clay Aiken: What can I say?? Clay’s voice is amazing and his interpretation of todays song is “spot-on.” There are just no words………
  2. David Foster: How can one person have so much musical creativity? David has written so many beautiful songs and My Grown-Up Christmas List is one of my favorites.
  3. Linda Thompson-Jenner: Linda began writing lyrics for some of David Foster’s compositions in 1990. Besides writing the lyrics to “I Have Nothing” from the movie, The Bodyguard, Linda wrote the moving lyrics to My Grown-Up Christmas List.
  4. SueReu: Sue has the wonderful talent of producing some of the most touching videos of Clay’s music. Her positive personality shines through as she manages to match the music with just the right visuals. Team-Clay should check out her ideas!

My Grown-Up Christmas List Lyrics

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 will never start
And time will heal our hearts
Every man will have a friend
That right will always win
And love will 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
On mind
This is the world I pray
We will all share some way
Help me begin
By reaching out my hand

No more lives torn apart
That wars will never start
And time will heal our hearts
Every man will have a friend
That right will always win
And love will never end
This is my grown up
Christmas List

Why does this illusion
Call the innocence of you?
Maybe when the time believe
We can find the truth

No more lives torn apart
That wars will never start
And time will heal our hearts
Every man will have a friend
That right will always win
And love will never end
This is my grown up
Christmas List

This is the prayer
That I will keep
This is my grown up
Christmas list
Christmas list
