The Beautiful Letdown by Switchfoot

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 has to offer me
would never do.

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

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

I don't belong here
I don't belong here
I gonna set sight
and set sail for the 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, you look just about the same.
Would you please take me off your list?
Easy living, please come and let me down.

What 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?
Let us sing one true tune.
