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 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 a 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, 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

Does anyone care
