Switchfoot - The Beautiful Letdown lyrics

Yea, yea

It was a beautiful letdown
When I crashed and burned
When I found myself alone, unknown and hurt.

It was a beautiful letdown
The day I knew
That all the riches this world had to offer me would never do.

In a world full of bitter pain and bitter doubt
I was trying so hard to fit in, fit in
Until I found out

That I don't belong here
I don't belong here
I will carry a cross and a song where I don't belong.
I don't belong

It was a beautiful letdown
When you found me here
And for once in a rare blue moon
I see everything clear

I'll be a beautiful letdown
That's what I'll forever be
And though it may cost my soul
I'll sing for free.

We're still chasing our tails
And the rising sun
And our dark water planet
Still spins in a race
Where no one wins
And no one's one.

See, I don't belong here
I don't belong

I don't belong here
I don't belong
I will carry a cross and a song
where I don't belong.
I don't belong

I don't belong here
I don't belong
Oh, I don't belong here
I don't belong

I'm gonna set sight
and set sail for the kingdom come.
Kingdom come
Your kingdom come.
Won't you let me down!
Let my foolish pride forever let me down.

Easy living, you're not much like your name
Easy dying, hey, you look just about the same.
Would you please take me off your list?
Easy living, please come on and let me down.

We are a beautiful letdown
painfully uncool
The church of the drop outs, the losers,
the sinners, the failures, and the fools.
What a beautiful letdown
are we salt in the wound?
And Let us sing one true tune, yeah.

I don't belong here
I don't belong
No, I don't belong here
I don't belong
No, I don't belong here
I don't belong
It feels like I don't belong here yeah, yeah,
I don't belong here
I don't belong
It feels like I don't belong here
I don't belong
No, I don't belong

Would you me down
Come on and let me down
You always let me down
I'm so glad that I'm let down
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Come on and let me down
'Cause I don't belong here
Please, won't you let me down
