"Hear Me" as written by and Clif/dioguardi Magness....
Hear me
Hear me

You gotta be out there
You gotta be somewhere
Wherever you are
I'm waiting
'Cause there are these nights when
I sing myself to sleep
And I'm hopin' my dreams
Bring you close to me
Are you listening?

Hear me
I'm cryin' out
I'm ready now
Turn my world upside down
Find me
I'm lost inside the crowd
It's getting loud
I need you to see
I'm screaming for you to please
Hear me

Hear me

Hear me
Can you hear me?
Hear me

I used to be scared of
Letting someone in
But it gets so lonely
Being on my own
No one to talk to
And no one to hold me
I'm not always strong
Oh, I need you here
Are you listening?

Hear me
I'm cryin' out
I'm ready now
Turn my world upside down
Find me
I'm lost inside the crowd
It's getting loud
I need you to see
I'm screaming for you to please
Hear me

I'm restless and wild
I fall, but I try
I need someone to understand
Can you hear me?
I'm lost in my thoughts
And baby I've fought
For all that I've got
Can you hear me?

Hear me
I'm cryin' out
I'm ready now
Turn my world upside down
Find me
I'm lost inside the crowd
It's getting loud
I need you to see
I'm screaming for you to please
Hear me

Hear me
Hear me
Hear me
Can you hear me?
Hear me
Hear me
Hear me
Can you hear me?
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Hear me
Hear me
Hear me

    General CommentThis song makes me think of a girl who lost or doesn't know her dad and she wants him to come back.

    "You gotta be out there,
    You gotta be somewhere...
    Wherever you are, I'm waiting... "

    She's waiting for her dad to come back and she won't forget about him.

    "Cause there are these nights when,
    I sing myself to sleep,
    And I'm hoping my dreams bring you close to me...
    Are you listening?"

    This part means that she wishes her dreams about him will come true so she doesn't have to be lonely without him. She sings herself to sleep (with songs like this one) and they cause her to (normally) dream about him.

    "I used to be scared of
    Letting someone in...
    But it gets so lonely being on my own
    And
    No one to talk to
    And
    No one to hold me
    I'm not always strong,
    Oh, I need you here
    Are you listening? "

    That verse tells me that she's pushed out the world but now she needs her dad ("Oh, I need you here, Are you listening?") She wants him to hear her plea for him to come back.

    "I need someone to understand" means that she needs someone to comfort her and to know what she's going through -- no one else in her family understands her and she's hoping that her dad will.

    General Commentheh... cricket, honey. your interpretation would make sense, but i find it uh.. odd, that she calls her dad "baby".

    i've always thought this song had to do with the girl looking for someone to love.

    General CommentWell, I acutally really listened to this song for the frist time..and...I'm in love with it.

    I think it's like...calling out for someone to see that your finally ready to have a relationship, after being so scared of it.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song was at one of her concerts and I thought I was going to cry because it was so beautiful. I think she sounds so much better live than anything else.

    General Commentthis song is really quite haunting - her big voice is perfectly suited to the lyrics, she really is calling out....it is amazingly sweet. i dont think its about her dad personally, i agree with B to the uzzell...being ready for a relationship after being scared for so long. i mean, who isn't guilty of that?! so pretty *

    General CommentI agree with those who say that it's about looking for love. But I also think she's saying that she needs love to find her because she isn't able to find it.

    General CommentThis song is about when you are trying to find love..you know..you're just calling for someone to save you, coz you are so tired of being lonely, all by yourself, that u know..there's a part of your life that u know that you are ready to love, and this song..it's just a call for love.

    General Commenti agree with cricket but thats my own opinion. it makes sense because i'm in the same situation (about my dad) and the song just fits in with my feelings so well.
