New England - Billy Bragg

I was twenty one years when i wrote this song
I'm twenty two now, but i won't be for long
People ask when will you grow up to be a man
But all the girls i loved at school
Are already pushing prams

I loved you then as i love you still
Tho i put you on a pedestal,
They put you on the pill
I don't feel bad about letting you go
I just feel sad about letting you know

I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new england
I'm just looking for another girl
I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new england
I'm just looking for another girl

I loved the words you wrote to me
But that was bloody yesterday
I can't survive on what you send
Every time you need a friend

I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only satellites
Is it wrong to wish on space hardware
I wish, i wish, i wish you'd care

I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new england
I'm just looking for another girl
