  • 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?Writer/s: KEITH REID, ANDY QUNTA, MAGGIE RYDER, CHRISTOPHER THOMPSON

  • Howard from St. Louis Park, Mn I remember hearing this song in the late 80s and it was one of the few rock and roll songs to have the sound of bagpipes in the instrumental track.
  • Greg from Fort Wayne, InThis is such a great anthem, in a time, at least here in America, and around the rest of the world, where the regular people need to declare our feelings under no uncertain circumstances to the supposed, "World Leaders", that it's time that they realize that we're fed up with their crap, and that there needs to be put into place some sort of rules that limit the power they actually have over the very people who gave them their position. They need to be reminded that we are the employers, not the slaves to their every whim, and that we're not made of money for them to spend. They are only guardians, not Lords!!!!!
