"Never, Neverland" as written by Jeffrey Bruce Waters and Coburn Pharr....
No not 'Alison Hell' part 2!
Yes, another gloomy subject!
Yet another true story!
This is about an unfortunate young girl
Who was locked in a room for
Half a decade just for looking at a boy in a grocery store!
Her guardian, also her grandmother,
Felt that the only way she could protect her granddaughter
From the 'evils and temptations' in the world was to confine her to her room 'Till eternity.'
There is, however, a rather happy end to all this when,
During the middle of the song,
The police/social workers storm the house and
Free the girl from her mental physical captivity.
She is now on the bright
Road to recovery whilst Nanny finds her new home in the sanitarium.
PS Clare is a doll!"

My room is full of toys and things
But filled with nothing new
Just me and Clare alone in this
Enchanted, placid room

It's Saturday and no more school
There hasn't been for years
She says we're here forever

Till eternity
Our solitude has been disturbed
Clare hold on, don't flee
With open arms they call my name
"Oh won't you come with me?"
Get back, back!
Just leave us all alone
Take that and that!
I'll break your every bone
Get back, back!

Just leave us all alone
Take that and that!
I'll break your every bone
Blacking out, poisoned
Colours now decay

Drifting off to never, Neverland
Please don't take me away
To never, Neverland
No, to the Neverland

Time has passed and now I see
What I've lived through
I've got no fears that match the hate
That came from you

It's Saturday, I've things to do
I wish you all the best
Now I leave your placid room
Enjoy eternal rest

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song, the first image that popped into my head was a little girl in an insane asylum. From a first person perspective, it first described the room she's trapped in, and when the staff of the asylum comes in, she suddenly lashes out at them. But then, the last part had me utterly stumped.

    Then, I heard it's about a little girl who was locked in a room for half a decade by her grandmother. Now it makes sense-again, it starts out describing the room by the little girl who's trapped in it, and in the middle part, The police/social workers storm the house and free the girl, but she's been alone in the room for so long that she lashes out at them in a mad rage. They manage to get her out, and now "time has passed" and the girl sees what she's lived through. The last part is the girl talking to her grandma, who is now in an insane asylum.
