    Lyrics

    I was 21 years when I wrote this song
    I'm 22 now but I won't be for long
    People ask me when will I grow up to understand
    Why the girls I knew at school are already pushing prams

    I loved you then as I love you still
    Though I put you on a pedestal you put me 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
    Are you looking for another girl?
    I don't want to change the world
    I'm not looking for a new England
    Are you 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
    It's 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
    Are you looking for another girl?
    I don't want to change the world
    I'm not looking for a new England
    Are you looking for another girl?

    My dreams were full of strange ideas
    My mind was set despite your fears
    But other things got in the way
    I never asked that boy to stay

    Once upon a time at home
    I sat beside the telephone
    Waiting for someone to pull me through
    When at last it didn't ring I knew it wasn't you

    I don't want to change the world
    I'm not looking for a new England
    Are you looking for another girl?
    I don't want to change the world
    I'm not looking for a new England
    Are you looking for another?
    I don't want to change the world
    I'm not looking for a new England
    Are you looking for another girl?
    Looking for another girl?
    Looking for another girl?
    Looking for another girl?
    Girl?
    Girl?
    Girl?
