Bukra Fi Mishmish (Arabic for "when pigs fly" or for when the impossible happens)

Written and performed by Israeli and Palestinian youth members of Heartbeat (ages 16-20).

HEARTBEAT is an international community of musicians, educators, and students using music to build mutual understanding and transform conflict. Founded in 2007 under a grant from Fulbright and MTV, Heartbeat empowers Israeli and Palestinian musicians by creating opportunities and spaces for musicians from both sides to work together, hear each other, and amplify their voices to influence the world around them.

Lyrics:
(Siwar)
Say what you want to say.
I just want to play.
Give me my violin.
Smile for a brighter day!

(Moody - in Arabic)
If there's hope, the power to work, and art, then there's life.
My lyrics can move mountains. There's music and equality.
Without fear there's no patience, 'cause you don't know what you would lose.
(That means if you know what you'll lose, you'll get scared. Then you know you need to be patient.)
Tomorrow will be better! Try to create and believe, Yes YOU Can.
There's the sun and its rays, yes there's hope down here.
The moon and even a bit of light, there's hope, even if it's small.
An important step in your life is to hope.
Take your step towards change.
Make your anxiety disappear.
To be free, you have to liberate yourself!

(Guy - in Hebrew)
All day I'm looking through my window and I understand whatever is his is mine and whatever is mine is yours. We are supposed to even be brothers, but to me it seems that doesn't really matter to you.
We'll break down the walls, and take down the flags and then we'll discover a world where everything is possible. When we understand that we're all human beings then forever and ever we will be able to live.
We will be able to live!
