Someof the most beautiful lyrics I've heard in a long time,

"I saw two shooting start last night
I wished on them
But they were only satelites
It's wrong to wish on space hardware
I wish that you
I wish you cared"

Billy Bragg
New England

The fact is that there are much better crafted, more subtle lyrics out there, lets face it, Shakespear this isn't. Yet in this case that is half the beauty. These are the words of an average bloke (and no individual sums up the word "bloke" that Billy Bragg!) tying to express his feelings and he manages it with such clarity. I simply love this song.
