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

    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

    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

    Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, 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, Tinkerbell, 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 say

    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 Writer/s: Ruth Berhe
