There Must Be Another Way was the Israeli entry at the 2009 Contest performed by Israeli-Arab duo Noa & Mira Awad.

It was performed 10th in the first semi-final, after Turkey's Hadise and before Bulgaria's Krassmir Avramov. Having placed inside the top nine of the televoting, the song qualified to the final, where it was performed second, after Lithuania and before France. It finished 16th with just 53 points.

The song is about the duo hoping for another way to bring peace between Israel and Palestine, as they've "gone a long way, a very difficult way, hand in hand" and that they "wait only for the day to come." The song is in English, Hebrew, and Arabic.

Lyrics

There must be another
Must be another way

Einaich, achot
Kol ma shelibi mevakesh omrot
Avarnu ad ko
Derech aruka, derech ko kasha yad beyad

Vehadma'ot zolgot, zormot lashav
Ke'ev lelo shem
Anachnu mechakot
Rak layom sheyavo achrei

There must be another way
There must be another way

Aynaki bit'ul
Rah yiji yom wu'kul ilkhof yizul
B'aynaki israr
Inhu ana khayar
N'kamel halmasar
Mahma tal

Li'anhu ma fi anwan wakhid l'alahzan
B'nadi lalmada
L'sama al'anida

There must be another way
There must be another way
There must be another
Must be another way

Derech aruka na'avor
Derech ko kasha
Yachad el ha'or
Aynaki bit'ul
Kul ilkhof yizul

And when I cry, I cry for both of us
My pain has no name
And when I cry, I cry
To the merciless sky and say
There must be another way

Vehadma'ot zolgot, zormot lashav
Ke'ev lelo shem
Anachnu mechakot
Rak layom sheyavo achrei

There must be another way
There must be another way
There must be another
Must be another way[1]

There must be another
Must be another way

עינייך, אחות

כל מה שלבי מבקש אומרות

עברנו עד כה

דרך ארוכה, דרך כה קשה יד ביד


והדמעות זולגות, זורמות לשווא

כאב ללא שם

אנחנו מחכות

רק ליום שיבוא אחרי


There must be another way
There must be another way

عينيك بتقول

راح ييجي يوم وكل الخوف يزول

بعينيك إصرار

أنه عنا خيار

نكمل هالمسار

مهما طال


لانه ما في عنوان وحيد للأحزان

بنادي للمدى

للسما العنيدة


There must be another way
There must be another way
There must be another
Must be another way

דרך ארוכה נעבור

דרך כה קשה

יחד אל האור

عينيك بتقول

كل الخوف يزول


And when I cry, I cry for both of us
My pain has no name
And when I cry, I cry
To the merciless sky and say
There must be another way

והדמעות זולגות, זורמות לשווא

כאב ללא שם

אנחנו מחכות

רק ליום שיבוא אחרי


There must be another way
There must be another way
There must be another
Must be another way




Your eyes, sister
Say all that my heart desires
So far, we've gone
A long way, a very difficult way, hand in hand

And the tears fall, pour in vain
A pain with no name
We wait
Only for the next day to come




Your eyes say
A day will come and all fear will disappear
In your eyes a determination
That there is a possibility
To carry on the way
As long as it may take

For there is no single address for sorrow
I call out to the horizons
To the stubborn heavens






We will go a long way
A very difficult way
Together to the light
Your eyes say
All fear will disappear

And the tears fall, pour in vain
A pain with no name
We wait
Only for the day to come
