Understand the things I say
Don't turn away from me
'Cause I spent half my life out there
You wouldn't disagree
D'you see me, d'you see?
Do you like me, do you like me standing there?
D'you notice, d'you notice?
Do you see me, do you see me?
Does anyone care?

Unhappiness was 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
Did 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 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
D'you know this, d'you know?
You did not find me, you did not find
Does anyone care?

Unhappiness was 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
Did she hold me when I was out there?
My father, my father, he liked me
Oh, he liked me, does anyone care?

Only 41 comments..This song just hits you in the heart now..
 what a voice, what a loss.. {#Cry}

Dolores Mary Eileen O'Riordan (6 September 1971 – 15 January 2018), On 15 January 2018, at the age of 46, while in London, England, for a recording session, O'Riordan died unexpectedly.

Wow, what a heartbreak, to see the news this wicked cold, snowy morning... RIP, Dolores, and thanks for giving us your soul in Music!
RIP, Delores. So very sad to hear this news.
Logging in to RP while this song is playing, then opening my Facebook and the first thing I see is that Dolores died. Sad, sad, tragically sad news. In moments like this life reminds us how unfair it can be. Devastating. Still can't wrap my head around this...
RIP. :-(
...yes Bill, that is very sad news..
Thank you Bill.  RIP Dolores.  Thanks for all the music. 
I've liked a lot of stuff I've heard from the Cranberries, but I have to say this song was a bit saccharine for my taste.  Still, R.I.P. Dolores O'Riordan. 
RIP :(
RIP
RIP Dolores O'Riordan
{#Sad}
Very sorry to learn this voice is now in Heaven.  RIP 
Thank you Bill.

RIP DO'R
Glad Bill is playing Cranberries, as Dolores just died suddenly in London today. She was 46. Wow. 
Thanks Bill.   Quite a loss.
I always liked them, I would like to see them back into a rotation, not as much love as Tom Petty got, but some love none-the-less.
One of the most beautiful singing voices I've ever heard. RIP Delores and my heart goes out ot the band.
Sad to hear of Dolores' passing...
Gone too soon. Thanks for playing this today, Bill.

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

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?

ilove cranberries
If I promise to be very very good and wash the dishes every day will you stop playing this? PLEASE!!!
Lovely voice, comforting and consoling. Great album.
Not good.
Leave it for the Turkeys
I used to like these guys, but D O\'Rs vocal \"stylings\" detract from my listening experience. She\'s got a nice enough voice, but does that weird sharp modulation thing too often.

As I refer to them, the Crapberries. You know, the things that hang off your dog\'s behind and make you laugh watching them run in circles... At least I\'d rather laugh at my dog\'s discomfort than experience my own listening to this band...

Her voice borders on shrill. I\'d rather listen to \"Ode to My Car.\"
I love this album...
