A New England
[Intro] 
C

[Verse]
      C
I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song
    G                     Am
I’m twenty-two now, but I won’t be for long
F                              Em
People ask me when will I grow up to be a man
             G                            F                  C
When all 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

[Chorus]
F                          C                                Am
I don’t want to change the world; I’m not looking for a New England
        F                          E     G
Are you looking for another girl?
F                          C                                Am
I don’t want to change the world; I’m not looking for a New England
           F                     C
  Are you looking for another girl?

[Verse]
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

[Chorus]
F                          C                                Am
I don’t want to change the world; I’m not looking for a New England
        F                          E G
Are you looking for another girl?
F                          C                                Am
I don’t want to change the world; I’m not looking for a New England
         F                     Bb    D      
Are you looking for another girl?

[Verse]
   D
My dreams were full of strange ideas
   A               Bm
My mind was set despite the fears
    G                F#m
But other things got in the way
  A                G           D
I never asked that boy to stay

[Bridge]
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

[Chorus] (x2)
G                            D                                   Bm
I don’t want to change the world; I’m not looking for a New England
            G                          F#     A
Are you looking for another girl?
G                            D                                   Bm
I don’t want to change the world; I’m not looking for a New England
            G
Are you looking for another?
G                             D                                  Bm
I don’t want to change the world; I’m not looking for a New England
            G                          D
Are you looking for another girl?

[Ending]
D
