Billy Bragg - A New England

by beatatarian

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

Though 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

Looking for another girl

Looking for another girl

Looking for another girl
