Wish List

Album: Single Release Only (2010)
  • I've had a fire burnin'
    Since the holidays began
    I hear it's cold out where you're livin'
    But any colder than I've been?
    I've been an animal since you left me
    I need you wrapped under my tree
    My Christmas cheer is here and ready
    But where are you to set it free

    I sit alone
    By the fire inside our home
    Outside the snow is fallin'
    And I'm singing

    Wish as I may
    Wish as I might
    Grant me this one small wish
    On Christmas night
    'Cuz I don't need candy
    Or the toys from my youth
    I just want you oh darlin'
    I just want you

    I've had a candle burnin'
    Hopin' you'll come back to me
    I think this may be more than anything
    Mr.Santa Claus can bring
    I was adorable when you met me
    I'm on the naughty list this year
    A lump of coal won't do it justice
    It's all the loneliness I fear

    I sit alone
    by the gifts in our own home
    You're not a single one
    And now I'm singing

    Wish as I may
    Wish as I might
    Grant me this one small wish
    On Christmas night
    'Cuz I don't need candy
    Or the toys from my youth
    I just want you oh darlin'
    I just want you

    I'm not the Grinch
    I'm not Mr. Scrooge
    My heart just needs your light
    Only thing I'm doin' is cryin'
    In my room and singin'
    I wish my baby
    Would be with me tonight

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    oh I've been so lonely

    Wish as I may
    Wish as I might
    Grant me this one small wish
    On Christmas night
    'Cuz I don't need candy
    Or the toys from my youth
    I just want you oh darlin'
    I just want you

    Oh oh oh
    I just want you oh darlin'
    I just want you

    Oh oh oh
    I just want you oh darlin'
    I just want you
