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

Billy Bragg - A New England lyrics meaning

Meaning

The chorus of “A New England” compiles Bragg’s feelings towards his approaching adulthood and his willingness to continue in his current relationship.

He interjects that, although he does believe he’s ready for a committed, adult relationship, he doesn’t want to settle down with the girlfriend of his childhood. This transition from childhood love to adult love documents Bragg accepting his age and responsibilities.
