Peter Pan – Distant Melody lyrics

Peter pan:
Once upon a time and long ago
I heard someone singing
Soft and low
Now when day is done
And night is near
I recall this song I used to hear
My child, my very own,
Don't be afraid, you're not alone
Sleep until the dawn
For all is well
Long ago this song was sung to me
Now it's just a distant melody
Somewhere from the past I used to know
Once upon a time
And long ago...

    In this song, Peter is singing about how he had heard a song when he was younger. The "My child" part is what his mother would sing to him when he was a baby before he ran away and left to Neverland. During this scene, Peter is singing to the lost boys, John, and Michael, to help them go to sleep. Once this song is over, Michael says that they should go home and Wendy agrees and tells Peter, leaving him sad.
