Wow, That’s a Good Song: Johnny Flynn, “The Box”

England sure seems to be producing a lot of young folk singers with very big voices, older than their years.  Johnny Flynn is one of them.

Now some more flowers grow
The corn gets eaten by a few more crows
And an old man’s box is full of bones
Won’t see his footprints in the stones

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing, I don’t need at all
Nothing, I don’t need at all

Also, is it just me, or does this video inspire some strong “Take On Me” flashbacks?
