Billy Bragg, New England sonant al cervell.

Avui m'he llevat amb aquesta preciosa cançó de Billy Bragg percutint al cervell. La vaig descobrir a la banda sonora del film "Half Nelson" (vegeu entrada del 19 de gener).

Les vacances van entrant a poc a poc, així que haurem d'anar acostumant l'ànima a deixar la lluita per uns dies. Petons Rodons nens.






I was twenty one years when I wrote this song
Im 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
