Hungary: András Kállay-Saunders wins A Dal with Running

András Kállay-Saunders, the winner of our A Dal 2014 poll, has proven our readers right. The “Running” singer moved Hungarian audiences and the professional jury with his song about overcoming child abuse, and will now sing for Budapest in Copenhagen! Ahead of the final he told our Hungarian correspondent Judit Sebok that he wasn’t worried his song would stir controversy. “Not all music has to be about love,” he said. “My song may not be the most pleasant topic, but we must face the truth. It happens everywhere in the world everyday.” Bogi, Fool Moon and Viktor Király also advanced to the “super final” against Kállay-Saunders.

Running lyrics

Silent cry, every night
This pain will never even lie
Daddy’s home, so she tries to hide
She calls her mom, but never a reply

She cries, cries, cries
She’s all alone
Daddy why, why, why, leave me alone
She calls for help,
She calls for help, but no one seems to care,
She calls for help but no one seems to care.
She keeps on running, running, running from this crazy life
She keeps on running, running, running, never sees the light

I can see the angels standing by your side
It’ll be alright

He’s back again, just one more time
Just wants to see her mother smile
She can’t forget her only child
Mama, let the devil in the house

She cries, cries, cries
She’s all alone
Daddy why, why, why, leave me alone
She calls for help,
She calls for help, but no one seems to care,
She calls for help but no one seems to care.
She keeps on running, running, running from this crazy life
She keeps on running, running, running, never sees the light

I can see the angels standing by your side
It’ll be alright

She keeps on running, running, running from this crazy life

She keeps on running, running, running, never sees the light
