You’re The Voice (John Farnham)

An English-born Australian pop singer. Domestically he has remained one of Australia’s best-known performers over a career spanning 40 years. Farnham took a break in the mid 1980´s and turned within, meditating on the spirit of the times, and listened to his quiet inner voice. The result was Australian rocks biggest selling album of all time Whispering Jack. It featured the hit song ´”You´re the Voice” about our ability to turn the pages over and write a new page of history. He asked us to find a peaceful resolution of our differences.

We have the chance to turn the pages over

We can write what we wanna write
We gotta make ends meet before we get much older
We’re all someone’s daughter
We’re all someone’s son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?

Chorus:
You’re the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
We’re not gonna sit in silence
We’re not gonna live with fear
This time, you know that we all can stand together
With the power to be powerful
Believing, we can make it better
We’re all someone’s daughter
We’re all someone’s son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?
Chorus
Repeat
We’re all someone’s daughter
We’re all someone’s son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?
