Running was the Hungarian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen performed by András Kállay-Saunders. A synth-pop/R&B song, András stated that "Running" was inspired by one of his friends that was an abuse victim. He also said that he wanted to bring awareness to this topic through his voice and he would like for abuse victims to know that they don't have to be afraid to speak up and ask for help.

One of the favorites going into the contest, the song qualified from the first semifinal in third place. In the final it was performed 21st, following Switzerland and preceding Malta. At the close of voting, it finished in 5th place with 143 points.

The result earned András 2 ESC Radio awards for Best Song (0.3% ahead of Undo for Sweden) and Best Male Artist (0.7% ahead of Sebalter for Switzerland).

Lyrics

Silent cries
Every night
This Pain don't ever leave her life
Daddy's home
So she tries to hide
She calls for 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

She'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 her 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 cries cries cries
Daddy why why why
she keeps on running running running
from this crazy life
keeps on running running
oh oh ohhhh
it'll be alright
