John Farnham (Dagenham, 1 juli 1949) is een Australische zanger van Britse afkomst. Internationaal is hij vooral bekend i Nederland, maar in Australië is hij al decennia een van de bekendste musici.

Van 1981 tot 1984 was hij het gezicht van de Little River Band waarmee hij drie albums maakte. John begon een solocarrière en brak in 1986 door met het album Whispering Jack en de van dit album afkomstige hit "You're the voice". Het album stond 25 weken op de eerste plaats. In de Top 40 bereikte hij met dit nummer de 15e plaats en dat was daarmee zijn grootste Top 40 hit.

Sindsdien was hij in talloze producties en concerten te zien, zoals bij de Olympische Zomerspelen van 2000 in Sydney toen hij samen met Olivia Newton-John optrad.

Songtekst



From the day that we were born we've been heading down a track
Sometimes it's made for good sometimes for bad
But if we look behind us there's a wave coming down
Carrying us forward to a new age

(What about the world) What about the world around us
(What about the world) (What about the age)
How can we fail to see?
(What about the world) (Aha)

And now that our fathers have gone (Aha)
And we've been left to carry on
What about the age of reason?

So why can't we be still, why can't we love each other?
Is kindness an ancient skill buried by our blindness?
And if we look behind us there's a wind blowing in
To create the age of reason

(What about the world) What about the world around us
(What about the world) (What about the age)
How can we fail to see?
(What about the world) (Aha)

And now that our fathers have gone (Aha)
And we've been left to carry on
What about the age of reason?

If we consider carefully the options put before us
So much wisdom, so much love, so much waiting for us
And if we look ahead there's the sun and the seasons
Another day another age of reason

(What about the world) What about the world around us
(What about the world) (What about the age)
How can we fail to see?
(What about the world) (Aha)

And now that our fathers have gone (Aha)
And we've been left to carry on
What about the age of reason?

(What about the world) What about the world around us
(What about the world) (What about the age)
How can we fail to see?
(What about the world) (Aha)

And now that our fathers have gone (Aha)

And we've been left to carry on
What about the age of reason?

(What about the world around us)
(What about the world) (What about the age)
How can we fail to see?
(What about the world) (Aha)

And now that our fathers have gone (Aha)
And we've been left to carry on
What about the age of reason?
