New England

Eines meiner Lieblingslieder, jetzt auch gespielt von einer meiner Lieblingsbands! Einfach der Reihe nach durchhören. So unglaublich toll!

Beatsteaks – New England (Live 2012)

Billy Bragg – New England (1983)

Billy Bragg – New England – The Tube (Live 1983)

Billy Bragg – New England (Live 2006)

Kate Nash and Billy Bragg – New England/Foundations (Live 2007)

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
(Looking for another girl)
(Looking for another girl)
(Looking for another gi-rl)

Herzlichst, Ihr Kapitän A. Hofmann.
