"The Beautiful Letdown" Lyrics [edit]
by Switchfoot | from the album The Best Yet

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 I donít belong here,
I donít belong here,
I will carry your cross and your song where I donít belong,
I donít belong.

It was a beautiful letdown when you found me here,
Yeah, for once in a rare blue moon, I see everything clear,
Iíll be your beautiful letdown; thatís what Iíll forever be,
And though it may cost my soul, Iíll sing for free,
Weíre still chasing our tails and the rising sun,
And our dark-water planet still spinning in a race where no one wins and no oneís one

See, I donít belong here,
I donít belong here,
I will carry your cross and your song where I donít belong here,
I donít belong,
I donít belong here,
I donít belong here,
Iím gonna set sight and set sail for the kingdom come,
Kingdom come, your kingdom come,
Wonít you let me down?
Yeah, let my foolish proud forever let me down.

Easy living, youíre not much like the name,
Easy dying, hey, you look just about the same,
Wonít 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 dropouts, and losers, the sinners, the failures and the fools,
What a beautiful let down
Are we salt in the wound?
Hey, let us sing one true tune, yeah.

I donít belong here,
No, I donít belong here,
No, I donít belong here,
Feels like I donít belong here,
Yeah, I donít belong here
It goes like: I donít belong here,
Yeah, I donít belong.

Would you let me down?
Come on and let me down,
You always let me down,
Youíre somebody Iíve let down, yeah,
Come on, let me down Ďcause I donít belong here,
Please, wonít you let me down?
