MY ONLY WISH (THIS YEAR) | testo

Last night I took a walk in the snow
couples holding hands, places to go
seems like everyone but me is in love
Santa can you hear me

I signed my letter that’s sealed with a kiss
I sent it off, and just said this
I know exactly what I want this year
Santa can you hear me

I want my baby, baby
I want someone to love me
someone to hold
maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
I’ll be on my own and a big red bow

Santa can you hear me?
I have been so good this year
and all I want is one thing
tell me my true love is near
he’s all I want, just for me
underneath my Christmas tree
I’ll be waiting here
Santa that’s my only wish this year

Christmas Eve, I just can’t sleep
would I be wrong, for taking a peek?
‘cause I heard that you´re comin’ to town
Santa can you hear me

I really hope that you´re on your way
with something special for me in your sleigh
oh please make my wish come true
Santa can you hear me

I want my baby, baby
I want someone to love me
someone to hold
maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
we’ll be all alone under the mistletoe

Santa can you hear me?
I have been so good this year
and all I want is one thing
tell me my true love is near
he’s all I want, just for me
underneath my Christmas tree
I’ll be waiting here
Santa that’s my only wish this year

I hope my letter reaches you in time
bring me a love, I can call all mine
‘cause I have been so good this year
can’t be alone, under the mistletoe
he’s all I want and a big red bow

Santa can you hear me?
I have been so good this year
and all I want is one thing
tell me my true love is here
he’s all I want, just for me
underneath my Christmas tree
I’ll be waiting here
Santa that’s my only wish this year

He’s all I want, just for me
underneath my Christmas tree
I’ll be waiting here
Santa that’s my only wish this year
Santa that’s my only wish this year
