Angus and Julia Stone puppets in Just A Boy

Angus and Julia Stone, brother-sister duo from Sydney, Australia, have released a music video for “Just a Boy”, the third video from the 2007 album, A Book Like This. The clip shows Angus singing and playing acoustic guitar surrounded by cut out figures and backed up by Mitchell Connelly on drums. A paper elephant walks up the neck of his guitar. Around him floats a clown, a zeppelin, a fairy. Real life school children walk into camera. The Stones appear as string puppets. Through a mirror we see teenage girls in costume at a party.

Lyrics

I bit my tongue in the arc of conversation
I don’t know why
I don’t know why
I met you once and I’d fallen for your notions
I don’t know why
I don’t know why

Do you believe that there is treasures in the ocean
Did I say I’m just a boy
One kiss from you and I’m drunk up on your potion
That big old smile is all you wore

Girl you make me want to feel
Things I’ve never felt before
Girl you make me want to feel
Did I say I’m just a boy
Did I say I’m just a boy
You can hold me to that

No lonely hands grab my suitcase full of nothing
I don’t know why
I don’t know why
You took me in gave me something to believe in
That big old smile is all you wore

Girl you make me want to feel
Things I never felt before
Girl you make me want to feel
Did I say I’m just a boy
Did I say I’m just a boy
You can hold me to that
