A New England
by Kirsty MacColl

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

Kirsty MacColl died prematurely in December 2000 (age 41), she was killed in a boat accident in Mexico. She pushed one of her sons away from the boat, but she got hit and killed by it. In my opinion, Kirsty died a hero.

Sam

Not a hero! Any mother would sacrifice herself to protect her children, whether human or animal. Nothing heroic about that, it is just a basic instinct. You are a hero when you risk death in order to save a stranger. THAT is heroism.

The world became a worse place when her life was taken from her suddenly
I will miss her music and stuff she wrote for others
