On February 24, AWS won A Dal 2018 with the song “Viszlát Nyár”. The five-piece post-hardcore group will now will fly the Hungarian flag in Lisbon, and fans are eager to see if their honest and energetic live performance will resonate with the European audience as strongly as it did with the Hungarian public.

“Viszlát Nyár” (Goodbye Summer) was inspired by the death of lead singer Örs Siklósi’s father, with the lyrics depicting the struggle and thoughts of a dying man, along with Örs himself trying to process this loss. It carries an important message: we should pay more attention to our loved ones, as long as they’re alive, because life is short and we never know when any of them could pass.

The lyrics of “Viszlát Nyár” were written by frontman Örs Siklósi himself and begin with a dying man talking most probably to his son, about the legacy that lives on when people die.

“My blood will keep running in your veins/If you won’t trade it away, there’ll be a mark on your heart/ That lifts you to the sky from the ground,” he sings in Hungarian. Another remarkable moment comes when Örs vents his anger by screaming “Viszlát” (“goodbye” in Hungarian) during an apparent breakdown.

And while the dying man doesn’t want his loved ones to forget him, or the fact he lives on through them, there’s a clear message that he wants them to move on — and to keep living.

“I’m washed out and weary, you’re still holding on, but, please, let go of me…”

“Viszlát Nyár” – AWS (Live at A Dal 2018 final)

Viszlát Nyár lyrics – AWS

Original lyrics

Játsszunk nyílt lapokkal végre
a hajómnak mennie kell
és itt fog hagyni téged

Majd benned él tovább a vérem
és ha nem adod el, a szíveden a jel
mi a földr?l az égig emel

Viszlát, nyár, most már elkéstél
mert azt hazudtad, enyém leszel
de nem jöttél

Viszlát, álom, köszönöm, hogy elt?ntél
Most már ideje visszakapnom
amiket elvettél

Megfáradt ereimben az élet
tudom, hogy fognál még
de engedj el már, kérlek

Itt van, tépd le bel?lem a részed
és ha nem adod el, a szíveden a jel
mi a földr?l az égig emel

English translation

Let’s lay our cards on the table
My vessel’s headed outbound
And it will leave you behind

My blood will keep running in your veins
If you won’t trade it away, there’ll be a mark on your heart
That lifts you to the sky from the ground

Summer’s gone, now you’re all too late
That you’ll be mine was just a lie
You never came.

Dreams all gone, thanks for fading away!
It’s about time that you repay
All you chose to take

I’m washed out and weary
You’re still holding on,
But, please, let go of me

You can tear off your fair share of me,
If you won’t trade it away, there’ll be mark on your heart
That lifts you to the sky from the ground

Proud of my country! I think this song is very underrated,but will be in the final,because in live it will be very demonstrative. #teamaws

I really hope so! They deserve to be in the final: the music is amazing, love the instruments, really heartfelt lyrics, his Voice is AMAZING, and the performance is breathtaking intense!! Good luck?

Not counting Noemo, this was my 3rd fave to win. Now this belts in the very top of personal faves. I feel safe for its qualification after watching some reactors like E Hub.

Great energy, living story. A Dal just keeps serving.

Eve

They are very positive and refreshing bunch of people, that’s for sure 😀

I’m so tired of screaming diva ballads, Ikea poop songs, generic danceable tunes… This song is a breath of fresh air. I don’t normally listen to heavy stuff, but for me this song was “LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT”. So, i think it will be the contest’s loss if Viszlát Nyár doesn’t at least qualify for the Grand Final.

S:T:
Guest

Soo… You guys either like it or hate it. Good news: no negative vote will count. Love from Hungary!

Sal
Guest

I don’t normally like this kind of music but I can say that this song is one of my favourites this year and I am confident it will pass to the final!

Purple Mask
Guest

What was difficult for me to take in at first was that the singer was singing as the dying man rather than as the son trying to move on. Once that idea sunk in, I realise that the lyrics are some of the best in the entire contest this year. Great stuff.

I would love it to qualify just to see some haters rant about it, it’s a pitty they will stay in semis, because I have this song in my top10.

I can’t believe people can be this narrowminded.

Mony
Guest

Sorry but this is not music, it’s pure noise. Hungary will so fail this year with this live exorcism…

Maximilian
Guest

Do you know that music has different genres? You think this is horrible. But other people think that this song is great. I will vote for it for sure

Andrea
Guest

Do you have a degree in musicology to declare what’s music and what’s not? Just because it doesn’t agree with your likes doesn’t make it less worthy of being called music. It has at least real instruments, compared to most music nowadays.

Purple Mask

Funny thing is that “The Exorcist” was one of the most successful horror films of all time. 😀

This ia a brilliant song! REAL rock…even metal. Just what ESC needs more of. Not shallow glamour, but honest real music 🙂 I LOVE IT…but some of the comments here are silly, sopme people need to broaden their musical horizon a bit more. ESC is also about rock. Many people love this music, I hope it qualifies. great melodic, catchy metal. And great lyrics

I’m glad there’s something without motherfreaking autotune in here. Hungary would have my vote if I had one.

I still only have one thing to say about Hungary this year:

Time’s Up

Time’s up for what?

Oh god, now the gatekeepers who bash this song and think that every song should sound like a Melfest-reject has shown up… seriously, Eurovision is about diversity, not just in language, but also in music. Most people seem to have forgotten that notion completely. And if there’s a following behind this genre, it certainly justifies its position even more. These guys went to Eurovision by winning their selection, so it certainly does send its signals. I get the feeling some people just wrote this off as “angry noise” without even listening to the song. Your loss, people. Imagine if someone… Read more »
Blackquill

Hmmm… you’ve got several points there. I’m a swede myself (I assume you are too based on the username) and I can definitely see where it comes from. On the other hand, Melfest has certainly started to falter in musical diversity over the recent years. This year was a testament to that. Besides, most newcomers don’t really stand that much of a chance unless they have some sort of experience from other contests of similar dignity, like “Idol” or the likes. These two recent winners were both sophomores and most of the time, with 2016 and 2013 being the few… Read more »

I agree!

If you think this is shouty, then you haven’t heard any metal song before. This has a melody, it’s not just screaming, and he actually screams in tune which is not easy.
For me Estonia is the screamo that I can’t stand, yet it’s loved by everyone for some reason and I respect that.

TK
Guest

100%! It’s melodic and he manages to keep the vocals even after the screams. Haha should link these cats to Parkway Drive or Amity Afflcition if they want to hear real screaming xD

lacrymea
Guest

My favorite this year. Well done, Hungary!

TK
Guest

Chuffing LOVE this one. Definitely my number one this year and all time number one!!! I love post hardcore so I’m over the moon to actually see it in Eurovision.

I know this kind of music isn’t to everyone’s taste. And that’s ok. But respect that they’ve brought a new sound to Eurovision and stayed true the genre. There is an authenticity to the song and band that most rock songs in Eurovision have lacked.

Hungary. Szerelem x

Polegend Godgarina

Greece’s song is boring and flat. So?

Eurovisionfan12
Guest

Oh just shut tf up you deluded Greek nationalist and stop bashing people everywhere who like this song, everyone has different tastes and you can’t convince them to hate this song by saying them that they are deaf or some other crap like that.

Eurovisionfan12
Guest

P.S. And also regarding the fact that you say that he is deaf, double standards, isn’t it?

Sage Anderson

I loved this one on the first listen.

I’m always a sucker for songs outside of the typical genre people send it (pop)

Alfred5
Guest
These guys remind me of Austin Powers , about thirty years behind the times , and yet , thinking themselves so trendy ..in their minds it’s still 1985 I remember when the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain first came down , they were all stumbling around in a daze , not quite believing their own eyes , and dressed in clothes that went out of fashion in the 1960s I well remember some , obviously Russian guy, in a restaurant in around 2008 who was dressed like the Beatles in 1964 with even the mop haircut and long sideburns… Read more »

It’s great music. Plus, the singer is hot. Top 10 for sure.

Eve

Thanks for the lyrics, I searched it before, but nice to see it here too <3
btw, AWS is confirmed for Amsterdam pre-party, yeeeeaah!

up!
Guest

This one is so easy to predict and to know before that we’ll have many people with shocked faces when “Hungary” will be revealed as qualifier…:-)
It’s always the same with this kind of entries – the catchier ones generally make it and this is quite catchy. I normally don’t like this genre too much, but it’s so pop-influenced that I am able to enjoy it a lot. My overall #9 atm…

Keiko
Guest
Excuse me for those who are saying it’s not music and only shouting. Let me tell you there aren’t limitations in Eurovision. Eurovision is meant for everybody. You have to understand that. I understand that’s your opinion but I wouldn’t care much about it. Besides, you didn’t fully understand what does this song means to other ESC fans like me. This song HAS A MEANING. Read between the lines, people! And how you would feel IF YOU LOSE A LOVED ONE? How would you really feel? That’s my question. Come back here again if you ever feel doubt yourself about… Read more »

Not only they’ll pass the final but they have a chance to win their semi-final or be close.
I’m so crazy over “Viszlát Nyár” that everyday I listen to this. Can’t wait for their performance in the contest. My number one. <3

Wer
Guest

It’s not good to see, that people inside Eurovision bubble can’t appreciate music, if it’s a woman making weird chicken noises in kimono..This is real music, with real instrument. These lyrics are really good and touching. His voice is so amazing. This is pure gold. Sad, that Eurovision-fans hate rock..

Tekla

That “shout” you’re talking about is one of the hardest singing techniques of all.

How can you be sure ESC-fans hate rock? why should they hate great music? 🙂

Brandon
Guest

The meaning behind the lyrics are useless if the song and performance is executed this way. Semi final one has much more deserving songs so this one I’m afraid will struggle to qualify.

Sage Anderson
Guest

This song is in semi-final TWO…

I’m sure it’ll make it in.

Colin
Guest

I love this song so much. I knew about the lyrics (I always google translate them at least), but I am so glad Wiwibloggs shared them so everyone can see. It’s a deep and poetic song in heavy metal / rock version. Not something you hear every day. Top 5 for sure.

Mandy Gates
Guest

Bottom 5 more likely

Nicola
Guest

Yes

Briekimchi
Guest

Not my sort of thing but I did follow A Dal and knew what the song was about. A shame that it just sounds like noise to me.

Polegend Godgarina

No

Hands down the best lyrics of the year.

No, Italy has WAY better lyrics than Hungary

Polegend Godgarina

As a native Italian speaker, I’m gonna have to say no.

So a song against terrorism is political propaganda now? Stick to your country’s meaningless song, Hellas.

Weißbrot

I don’t care what all of you say, but Hungary is my 1st place! I already knew the lyrics and the backstory…. And together with this amazing Music (Some of you won’t call it Music, but surprise: It actually is. There are other Genres than Pop…) nothing this year could beat Hungary for me.

Can I get an amen !!!

Kyna

At first, I wasn’t into it since I’m not that keen on this genre. But after watching the music video and finding out the background story, I fell in love. The video was heartwarming and touching, it really made me feel emotional. Thank you and good luck Hungary!

William Lee Adams

Lovely to hear your personal journey! <3

Ana
Guest

My “story” is similar. The only difference is that I mostly like songs like this one, but AWS didn’t convince me when I watched the Hungarian national final. I just thought “average”, plus I didn’t like the buzz that started immediately among their fans. Plus… I was really disappointed that “Meggyfa” lost so badly. After some time, I gave the song another shot, and it worked.
Well, it seems that I love Hungary as every year 😉

Jakumata
Guest

Finally a metalcore band at eurovision <3 This is a welcome diverse addition really, as Europe is not just popmusic, ballads and dramatic people with "the looks". I am so much in love with this.

Dan
Guest

Agree with this!! Europe showcasing diversity in musical genres seems very apt given how diverse our people and cultures can be 🙂

Riga Margot

Lyrics can’t save this abomination of a song. This will certainly get last in its semi.

It still has chances to qualify.

If somebody is not into screaming, here is an acoustic version:

This acoustic version is much better and easier on the ears. Knowing the lyrics also helps me like this better.

Yaa

I love it and I’ l vote for it! Just be sure you’re in the finals! This is from your etermal enemies, that also vote for you, Romania!

William Lee Adams

The lyrics make me love it even more. This could be inching into my Top 5

Botond B
Guest
This is my winner to. William let me tell you my opinion why it has a very good chance to qualify. You said a lot of good things about this song with what I agree with you…ex. its different, melodic, it will stand out, its good quality music with deep meaning….This is far one of the best entry’s in this year contest and from the Hungarian songs. It is also risky but I think in Europe the rock and metal fans will join their forces and I think it will surprise Europe.Why I think its a sure qualifier?…first of all… Read more »
