Ruth B – Lost Boy lyrics

[Intro]
There was a time when I was alone
No where to go and no place to call home
My only friend was the man in the moon
And even sometimes he would go away too


[Verse 1]
Then one night, as I closed my eyes
I saw a shadow flying high
He came to me with the sweetest smile
Told me he wanted to talk for awhile
He said... Peter Pan that's what they call me
I promise that you'll never be lonely
And ever since that day
...

[Chorus]
I am a lost boy from Neverland
Usually hanging out with Peter Pan
And when we're bored we play in the Woods
Always on the run from Captain Hook


Run run lost boy, they say to me
Away from all of reality
Neverland is home to lost boys like me
And lost boys like me are free


[Verse 2]
He sprinkled me in pixie dust and told me to believe
Believe in him and believe in me
Together we will fly away in a cloud of green
To your beautiful destiny


As we soared above the town that never loved me
I realized I finally had a family
Soon enough we reached Neverland
Peacefully my feet hit the sand and ever since that day
...

[Chorus]
I am a lost boy from Neverland
Usually hanging out with Peter Pan
And when we're bored we play in the Woods
Always on the run from Captain Hook


Run run lost boy, they say to me
Away from all of reality

Neverland is home to lost boys like me
And lost boys like me are free


[Bridge]
Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy darling
Even Captain Hook you are my perfect story book
Neverland I love you so, you are now my home sweet home
Forever a lost boy at last


Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy darling
Even Captain Hook you are my perfect story book

Neverland I love you so, you are now my home sweet home
Forever a lost boy at last... And for always I will sing


[Chorus]
I am a lost boy from Neverland
Usually hanging out with Peter Pan
And when we're bored we play in the Woods

Always on the run from Captain Hook

Run run lost boy, they say to me
Away from all of reality
Neverland is home to lost boys like me
And lost boys like me are free


Neverland is home to lost boys like me
And lost boys like me are free

    Okay so knowing the story about Peter Pan, this is how I look at the song, forgive me if I'm wrong but this is how I see it.

    The song is about kids who die and peter pan is the angel that guides them to heaven which is "Neverland". The song is sad but beautiful as well. "Then one night I closed my eyes" I would assume he/she was dying. "He sprinkled me in pixie dust and told me to believe Believe in him and believe in me Together we will fly away in a cloud of green To your beautiful destiny" meaning that Peter Pan is telling the child that everything is going to be okay and they the child should just believe in him as they reach their destination (heaven). "As we soared above the town that never loved me I realized I finally had a family Soon enough we reached Neverland Peacefully my feet hit the sand" the child is looking down at the city where he/she didn't feel like they belonged and felt like no one was there and then soon (which led me to partially think it was a suicide) the child then felt like he/she was loved and was where they finally needed to be which was with Peter Pan and never land. And then eventually the child had reached heaven. "Run run lost boy, they say to me Away from all of reality Neverland is home to lost boys like me And lost boys like me are free" is about how the child feels that he/she is free from all his/her problems. The child believes that Neverland is where he/she belonged and that this was the place where they needed to be free and happy for a change.

    This song is about a person who fells very lonley Intro. The person wishes that someone helps her and go through life with her. So she refuges herself into a fairy-tale. Peter Pan is her friend now. The story of never-land is that there you could be anyone you want to be and you always have friends and everything is possible. Your life could be like you had always imagined and that's what the singers searching for. Because of that the story of Peter Pan was chosen. Like its mentioned in the chorus the person runs from the reality and its bad things (captain hook).

    I think this song is about drugs. PeterPan is supposed to represent some type of drug in which the person uses to escape from depression. "NeverLand" is supposed to represent getting high. Captain Hook is depression, anxiety, (or whatever mental illness the person has )that usually attacks him but with PeterPan he is able to defeat him. "Lost Boy" means depressed, suicidal people are now free with using drugs.

    I think that neverland is more of a state of mind than a place. I think that a "lost boy" is supposed to represent a dreamer that has an active imagination rather than an actual boy that is lost. When it says "lost boys like me are free", I think it's suggesting that since dreamers have such an active imagination, they can escape the harsh captivity of reality and be free in their dreams/imagination.

    Basically this song is about some one more than likely a child who does not feel welcome/hates life on general so they commit suicide in which they go Neverland (heaven). In this song Peter Pan is the angel who guides the child to heaven. The part about where it goes I finally had a family is when the child realized they had a family on earth an are basically feeling regret over killing themself.
