Last week my friend Jonathan from http://husbandandhusband.net told me about this song called Lost Boys, by Ruth B. Its haunting lyrics and beautiful melody have been stuck in my head since then (thanks ever so much Jonathan!), and since I still haven’t figured out how to link to a video, I thought I’d share a few lines from the song.
There was a time when I was alone
Nowhere 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.
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…
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.
