Ode To My Family - The Cranberries

"ODE TO MY FAMILY"
by the Cranberries

(tentatively from their next CD)

Understand the things I say
Don't turn away from me
'Cause I've spent half my life out there
You wouldn't disagree

Do you see me? Do you see?
Do you like me? Do you like me standing there?
Do you notice? Do you know?
Do you see me? Do you see me?
Does anyone care?

Unhappiness was when I was young
We didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as fine
Take it if we can

My mother, my ma
She hold me, she hold me
When I was out there
My father, my father
He liked me, oh he liked me,
Does anyone care?

Understand what I've become
It wasn't my design
And people everywhere
They sob, think better than I am

But I miss you, I miss --
'Cause I liked it,
'Cause I liked it when I was out there
Do you notice? Do you know you did bad by me,
You did bad by --
Does anyone care?

Unhappiness was when I was young,
We didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as fine,
Take it if we can

My mother, my ma
She hold me, she hold me
When I was out there
My father, my father
He liked me, well he liked me,
Does anyone care? Does anyone care?
Does anyone care? Does anyone care?
Does anyone care? Does anyone care?
Does anyone care? Does anyone care?
