On the subject of songs in the Bat stage show, I've just had a brain wave, or I could be talking bollocks:

If the Bat stage show has Wendy deciding to return home and leave Peter in Neverland, wouldn't 'I'll Kill If You Don't Come Back' fit great ?

A distraught Peter stands alone on stage, and belts out this lost treasure, with these perfect lines:

"Somebody bless all these girls that I never have met,
But damn you and curse you after all that you've done
You're the one girl I'll never forget,
You're the one girl I'll never forget,
Somebody bless all these girls and everything that they do,
BUT DAMN ME AND CURSE ME FOR STILL NEEDING YOU !"


I've just been listening and the coda is glorious as ever, but some Bat-relevant lyric changes in the first half could help, along with a more piano based arrangement.
