"I Hear Your Heart" was the Latvian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006, performed in English by Vocal Group Cosmos.

The song is entirely a cappella, in line with the group's usual musical style. Lyrically, the group sings about the sound of their lovers' hearts, which can cut through the chaotic sounds of modern life. Many of these sounds are impersonated by members of the band.

The performance featured the band wearing white suits and largely remaining static onstage. Near the end of the song, however, two members (Jānis Ozols and Reinis Sējāns) set up a small robot which also danced with them in the final chorus.

Due to Latvia's success at the 2005 Contest, the song was pre-qualified for the final. Here, it was performed fourth (following Israel's Eddie Butler with "Together We Are One" and preceding Norway's Christine Guldbrandsen with "Alvedansen"). At the close of voting, it had received 30 points, placing 16th in a field of 24 and forcing Latvia to qualify through the semi-final at their next Contest appearance.
