Lost Boy Lyrics

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

[Verse 1]
Then one night, as I closed my eyes,
I saw a shadow flying...

    I think this song is about finally being happy in life after misery and depression. Really sums up how I have felt this year after becoming seriously ill. It's beautiful.

    I think this song is about being somewhere were everyone wants you to be something you're not. Finally the person just ran away and did them and found happiness.

    I feel that this song is about addiction, drugs being Peter Pan, playing in the woods meaning experimenting with stronger things and Captain Hook being death,Drugs take you away from reality for a little while and make you feel alone because your family just wants you to do better so you feel that they hate you for your problem which makes you turn to drugs for comfort....I guess it could have other meanings as well depending on what you or someone in your family is going through....My brother battles addiction so this song makes me think of him....he's an amazing person but he's just lost right now

    This song is so beautiful, it reminds me of depression and suicide but also hope and happiness and that there is always a way out and light at the end of the tunnel

    My friend only just passed from suicide :(

    This song makes me cry but it's beautiful

    I think the song means she is alone but she still has her imagination (Peter Pan being the imagination) I hope u agree :)

    This song is about how one boy found his happiness even in the darkest of times. It sounds like me in 4 and 2 grade.

    This song is kind of about her being alone and then she finds someone that gave her life and happiness.

    This song is about suicide and depression... This is just my opinion... Peter pan is representing the hope and hook is the death... This song still makes me cry to this date... She may have said it is about something different... But that's how I relate
