"Hear You Me" is a song by Jimmy Eat World, from their 2001 album Bleed American.

Overview

"Hear You Me" was written in tribute to the band's friends, Mykel and Carli Allan. Along with being Weezer fans, the sisters were big supporters of the band in their earliest days, and provided the Arizona-based band a place to stay while in Los Angeles. It features Rachel Haden of The Rentals and that dog. on backing vocals.

Two alternate versions are available. A 2002 Inner Ear session recording was initially released on both the audio and video portions of the Believe In What You Want DVD/CD set, 2003. The audio version is currently available on the 2008 deluxe edition of Bleed American. Also, a demo of the song can be found on the bootleg Bleed American Demos. Neither version features Haden.

The song has been featured in the films Out Cold, The Butterfly Effect, and A Cinderella Story, as well as the television series One Tree Hill.

Lyrics

There's no one in town I know
You gave us somewhere to go
I never said thank you for that
Thought I might get one more chance

What would you think of me now?
So lucky, so strong, so proud
I never said thank you for that
Now I'll never have a chance

May angels lead you in
Hear you me, my friends
On sleepless roads, the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

And if you were with me tonight
I'd sing to you just one more time
A song for a heart so big
God wouldn't let it live
