Lost Boy

You've no doubt heard this summer's ballad, Lost Boy.

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

I was delighted to learn more about the singer, Ruth B. It's actually the first song she's written!

I love the song but I can't help but think about the story behind Peter Pan. That story was written by J.M. Barrie and inspired by a pretty awful childhood.  You can learn more here (minute 11 on):
