On this track from her sophomore album, Kate Bush sings from the perspective of a little boy who is afraid to grow up. He idolizes Peter Pan, the eternally youthful character from J.M. Barrie's 1911 novel who enjoys a never-ending childhood in Neverland. Bush spoke of the tune in the promotion materials for Lionheart: "It's sorta about childhood. And the book itself is an absolutely amazing observation on paternal attitudes and the relationships between the parents - how it's reflected on the children. And I think it's a really heavy subject, you know, how a young innocence mind can be just controlled, manipulated, and they don't necessarily want it to happen that way. And it's really just a song about that."
