"Hear You Me" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
There's no one in town I know.
You gave us some place to go.
I never said thank you for that.
I 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.

So 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.
May angels lead you in.
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.

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

    Memorywhen i was 15 i moved to a new town and knew no one. one of the guys at my new school came up to me and pretty much told me i had to sit with him and his friends, and i had no choice. we became best friends. we were inseperable. he died when i was 17. i heard this song a couple weeks after he died and i could only cry. this song means the world to me. i miss my friend so much. everytime i hear this song i feel him with me. so i dedicate this to Jeffrey Scott Minster. "May angels lead you in, hear you me my friend"

    General CommentI love this song. It's one of my favorites off the new Jimmy Eat World CD "Bleed American." I think what the guys are trying to convey to the listener is that someone in their life that was close to them died and that person did so much for them, but they never the opportunity to thank them for the little things. Also that they hope that they're somewhere in heaven and maybe looking down on them.

    General CommentI've been told (and i believe ) that this song is about those 2 poor kids who were killed in a car accident in cali years back. The ones who were the leaders of the Weezer fan club.

    General Commentthis song was included on an album dedicated to Mykel and Carli, the women that ran the weezer fan club 93-97. they're catchphrase (sort of) was hear you me, and they died in a car crash. knowing this, the song makes sense, as the duo would often look after up and coming bands my giving them places to stay and baking them cakes and food at concerts

    General CommentI love how toward the end of the song, his voice starts cracking a little. It shows like the emotion of the song and everything. I love ittt. (:

    General CommentThe person probably did a lot for them and they never got a chance to thank them for it, but I think that's because the person dies. It's hard to imagine this song being about someone living with things like "may angels lead you in" and "a song for a heart so big god wouldn't let it live"

    this verse gets me everytime I listen to this song. It is just so powerful, and sad. I agree with Dorky that this song is about someone who helped them, and they never got a chance to thank them. It's just such a great song.

    General Commentmy sister died of cervical cancer two months ago and this song was played at the funeral. she adored it and we thought i would be fitting. so now everytime i hear this song, especially the part about angels, i remember the best sister in the world - Jessica Daisy Norton 01/02/81 - 11/12/01. i love you Jess.
