Ode to My Family
The Cranberries Lyrics


Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do
Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do
Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do
Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do

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'd hold me
She'd hold me when I was out there
My father, my father
He liked me, well he liked me
Does anyone care?

Understand what I've become
It wasn't my design
And people everywhere 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'd hold me
She'd 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?

Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do
Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do
Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do
Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do
Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do
Doo doo doo do, doo doo doo do

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

Unhappiness where's when I was young

Does anyone care?
Does anyone care?
Does anyone care?
Does anyone care?
Does anyone care?

This is my favorite video of Dolores . I first heard her in the early 90s. Loved the way she sang. Was in my 40s then. Now Im 73 and I can appreciate how swiftly life passes.
And now this song makes me cry and miss my family, who have all passed on . Enjoy your family while you have it . And live life all you can . Thank you, Dolores, for your beautiful songs . RIP .

Yes I agree,younger people are not aware of the heartache until they loose their families if they had a good kind caring mum and dad, siblings etc.. But the people who didn't have issues and needs... Unless their surrogate family are there for them.. To understand pain and loss you need to have empathy..
For others to feel this song 💕
