"You Were Here" is a 2000 album by Sarah Harmer.

It was her commercial breakthrough in Canada, after years of "almost" reaching the pop charts with Weeping Tile. Ironically, the album's first big hit, "Basement Apt.", had previously been a Weeping Tile song, appearing on that band's 1995 release "eepee". Harmer also had a big hit with "Don't Get Your Back Up", which she had previously recorded with The Saddletramps. Three other songs, "Weakened State", "Lodestar" and "Coffee Stain", had also been previously recorded by Weeping Tile, on 1998's "This Great Black Night".

The album was also warmly received by critics in the United States. "TIME" ranked "You Were Here" in its year-end Top Ten list, calling it the year's best debut album. Harmer also appeared on "The Late Show with David Letterman", in a famous appearance in which stage manager Biff Henderson jumped in to sing impromptu backing vocals.

The album's title track is a tribute to her former Weeping Tile bandmate Joe Chithalen, who died in 1999.

"You Were Here" was named the 24th greatest Canadian album of all time in Bob Mersereau's 2007 book "The Top 100 Canadian Albums".
