"You're The Voice" as written by Chris Thompson, Andy Quanta, Keith Reid and Maggie Ryder....
You're The Voice



We have the chance, to turn the pages over
We can write what we want to 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?

You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo

This time, we know we call 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?

    General CommentA rockin' song but they should have more posted on here. i believe this is about the younger generation having the power to voice their opinions about reconciliation between countries.

    General Commentyeah and no one listens to you dick sneeze like i said once before go and get a life instead of ruining other boards here otherwise ur messing with me. Anyway i think this song has a great motive instinct about it and also i love his culture and the way he portrays himself to the industry. By saying i thought this song deserved a lot more posts here and credit to john farnham for a great icon to OZ.

    General Commentyou're mistaking yourself with someone else xD you're opinion is so not tactic, useless and out of delicacy. if you don't like this song, nobody's forcing you to listen to it.
    as for me it's like one of the greatest songs i've ever heard :) it's like so powerful and oh idk it makes me feel so heroic just as when i listen to he's a pirate from the POTC soundtrack xD

    General CommentDick sneeze, 40 years John has been doing this, which is longer than some performers would do. For someone who was born in England but moved here, he's great

    General CommentLol @ these comments. I love this song and I love John's voice. Dick sneeze, that is a very appropriate name for you; my dick could sneeze more constructive comments than you have provided, hey - here's an idea, see if you can post a comment without saying "fuck" then maybe I'll give a shit about what you have to say. But don't count on it.

    General Commentoi, dick-nose... sorry, I mean dick sneeze... you my friend, are a wanker. If you really feel like gnawing at your wrists, don't let us stop you, hopefully if you don't die, you'll at list make your hands unuseable so you can't post the random useless bullshit you've posted so far. Ass.

    General CommentThe best thing about john farnham is that he's retired.

    Hate the song.

    Hate his music in general (esp about the bloody cleaning lady) and I hate that every half-baked entertainer that ever lived in Australia gets the tag Australian.

    Next thing people will be saying that Leo Sayer is a great Austrlian.
