   [Verse 1]
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                           C/E
People ask when will I grow up to understand
             G                            Fmaj7          C
Why all the girls I knew at school Are already pushing prams


   [Verse 2]
C
I loved you then as I love you still
         G                         Am
Though I put you on a pedestal,you put me on the pill
F                      C/E
I don't feel bad about letting you go
G                     Fmaj7       Fmaj7sus2
I just feel sad about letting you know


   [Chorus 1]
F                          C
I don't want to change the world
                C/B        Am
I'm not looking for a new England
        F                     E    G
Are you looking for another girl?
F                          C
I don't want to change the world
                C/B        Am
I'm not looking for a new England
        F                     C   G/C
Are you looking for another girl?


   [Verse 3]
C
I loved the words you wrote to me
    G               Am
But that was bloody yesterday
  F                C/E
I can't survive on what you send
G              Fmaj7     C
Every time you need a friend


   [Verse 4]
C
I saw two shooting stars last night
G                    Am
I wished on them but they were only satellites
    F                C/E
Its wrong to wish on space hardware
  G               Fmaj7      Fmaj7sus2
I wish, I wish, I wish you'd care


   [Chorus 2]
F                          C
I don't want to change the world
                C/B        Am
I'm not looking for a new England
        F                     E    G
Are you looking for another girl?
F                          C
I don't want to change the world
                C/B        Am
I'm not looking for a new England
        F                     Bb
Are you looking for another girl?

   [Bridge]
   D
My dreams were full of strange ideas
   A               Bm
My mind was set despite my fears
    G                D5
But other things got in the way
  A                Gadd9   D
I never asked that boy to stay
D
Once upon a time
  A              Bm
I sat beside the telephone
G                      D5
Waiting for someone to pull me through
        A                    G             Gadd9
When at last it didnt ring i knew it wasnt you


   [Chorus 3]
G                          D
I don't want to change the world
                D          Bm
I'm not looking for a new England
        G                     F#    A
Are you looking for another girl?
G                          D
I don't want to change the world
                D          Bm
I'm not looking for a new England
        G                    
Are you looking for another 


   [Outro]

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