What more would you ask of me to prove myself to you?
Why do you make me want to?
Want to please you like I do?
What is the price of your respect and acknowledgement?
I've tried; God knows I've tried
I've fallen, bled, broken and cried
Is there something else I should be?
I have all this inside but you don't see

What is my quest, what do you wish of me?
Wish me away
Away, away, away
Would you wish me away?

Wish me away
Bear me to the sea
Let me drift in the currents
Of uncertainty
Carry me to the cliffs
The sandstone and white horses
To whom I will be born
Let me go and do not mourn
Release me, your homing pigeon
At the break of day
Oh, release me
Wish me away

Why is it that I must hide who I am from you?
Why do you make me feel I have to?
Why can't you see through?
Where is the justice in your court, Your Honour?
I'd object but what's the use?
I lost the appeal, endured the abuse
Why does all emotion remain hidden inside?
Why is this feeling something I must hide?

What is my quest, what do you wish of me?
Wish me away
Away, away, away
Would you wish me away?

Wish me away
Bear me to the sea
Let me drift in the currents
Of uncertainty
Carry me to the cliffs
The sandstone and white horses
To whom I will be born
Let me go and do not mourn
Release me, your homing pigeon
At the break of day
Oh, release me
Wish me away
Release me
Release me
I'm begging
Pleading
Now on my knees before you
Release me
Release me
Set me free
Release me, you homing pigeon
At the break of day
Emancipate me
Wish me away
