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 Though 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 [Hook] 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 [Verse 2] 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 [Hook] 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 Looking for another girl Looking for another girl Looking for another girl

about

When Hickey came through Austin Texas at Christmas time in 1996, 50 million had just moved their home base from SF to Austin and hosted a show with Hickey at Hole in the Wall. Christmas Eve with Hicky at a hole in the wall called Hole in the Wall- perfect. Later that night at our friend Niki Lake's house in the woods of San Marcos, we got stoned and went on a night time canoe ride down the san marcos river that was very "apocolypse now" and one of my fondest memories of our friends in Hickey. The next day, Christmas day, in freezing weather, we recorded a handful of songs together as a 5 piece in Niki's metal storage shed. It is a really cool record we call Hickey Million and the original plan that never happened was to press a limited edition of 7" singles and sew them shut in screen printed fabric sleeves. Artist Allan Buris made the art, but the project never happened and that exact art cannot be found. So the art here is a small close up of a painting by Allan Burris that I have in my personal collection, and I made the image in photoshop myself to use instead. Very cool group of songs including a Billy Bragg cover.
