John Farnham The Voice To Parliament Campagain

The Australian music legend John Farnham has lent his iconic song You’re the Voice to the referendum’s yes campaign, backing calls to insert an Indigenous voice to parliament in the constitution.

You’re the Voice will soundtrack a new series of ads from the Uluru Dialogue to be released in a nationwide blitz this weekend. It’s believed to be the first time Farnham, who is recovering from cancer, has ever permitted the song to be used in a commercial.

“This song changed my life. I can only hope that now it might help, in some small way, to change the lives of our First Nations peoples for the better,” Farnham said.

We have the chance to turn the pages overWe can write what we want to writeWe gotta make ends meet, before we get much olderWe’re all someone’s daughterWe’re all someone’s sonHow long can we look at each otherDown the barrel of a gun?
You’re the voice, try and understand itMake a noise and make it clearOh, whoaWe’re not gonna sit in silenceWe’re not gonna live with fearOh, whoa
This time, we know we all can stand togetherWith the power to be powerfulBelieving we can make it betterOoh, we’re all someone’s daughterWe’re all someone’s sonHow long can we look at each otherDown the barrel of a gun?
