Chords: C, G, Am, F, Em, E
This is the original version. A nice thing is on the chorus to put your little finger on 
(the G) to give a nice accent.

[Verse]
I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song
I¡¦m twenty-two now, but I won¡¦t be for long
People ask me when will I grow up to be a man
Why the girls I knew at school are already pushing prams
C / G Am / F Em / G F C

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 „³ 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
„³ 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 „³ 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
„³ Are you looking for another girl?
