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)
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

It was a beautiful letdown
When you found me here
Yeah 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 won
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)
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, your 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 dropouts, the losers, the sinners, the failures and the fools
Oh, what a beautiful letdown
Are we salt in the wound?
Let us sing one true tune, yeah
I don't belong here
(I don't belong)
I don't belong here
(I don't belong)
Feels like I don't belong here, yeah
(I don't belong)
I don't belong here
(I don't belong)
Feels like I don't belong here, yeah
(I don't belong)
I don't belong here
(I don't belong)
I don't belong
Would you let me down?
Come on let me down
You always let me down
So glad that I'm let down, yea
Come on and let me down
'Cause I don't belong here
Please, won't you let me down?
