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.”
I first heard this song driving through Rock Creek Park on a beautiful sunny day. The trees were turning over from their bare branches to lush green leaves. The sunlight weaving in and out of them. I don’t know if it’s because of the scenery I was in that I fell in love with this song. Or if the scenery made me listen to it more intently. But by the end I wanted to hit replay and be a lost boy in the woods with Peter Pan.
Take a listen. Ruth B’s voice is amazing, beautiful, and soulful. You can’t help but dream of being a lost boy.
‘Til the next time.
