“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 where’s when I was young
and we didn’t give a damn
‘cause we were raised
to see life as fun and take it if we can
my mother, my mother
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 ev’rywhere think, something 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 know this?
do you know you did not find me, you did not find
does anyone care?

Unhappiness where’s when I was young
and we didn’t give a damn
‘cause we were raised
to see life as fun and take it if we can
my mother, my mother
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? Does anyone care?
Does anyone care? Does anyone care?
Does anyone care? Does anyone care?
Does anyone care? Does anyone care?
Does anyone care?”.

Citazioni.

Ode to My Family is a 1994 song recorded by the Irish band The Cranberries. It was released in November 1994 as the second single from their second studio album No Need to Argue. The song was a hit in most of the European countries where it was released, peaking at number four in France, its highest position internationally, and number five in Australia. This ballad was less successful than the previous Cranberries single, “Zombie“. In 2017, the song was released as an acoustic, stripped down version on the band’s Something Else album. “Ode to My Family” is written in the key of D major with a tempo of 100 beats per minute. The entire piece follows the chord progression 4/4 |: D | Bm | F♯m | Gsus2 D/A 😐 ostinato. The song is about Dolores’s yearning for her simple life as a child after having achieved success, and includes a string arrangement composed by O’Riordan. The single’s music video, shot on black-and-white, was directed by Samuel Bayer. Bayer had also directed the band’s video for their preceding single, “Zombie“”.
