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 inuntil 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.

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 in the rising sun. In our dark water planet still spinning no one wins and no one's won.

See I don't belong here; I don't belong, 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 here, 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 yeah, let my foolish pride, forever let me down.

Ah, 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. Oh what a beautiful letdown. Are we salt in the wound? Hey, let us sing one true tune, yeah

I don't belong here (I don't belong). Feels like I don't belong here (I don't belong). Yeah I don't belong here (I don't belong). No I don't belong

Would you let me down, come on and let me down. You always let me down; so glad that I'm let down, yeah. Come on and let me down cuz I don't belong to you. Please won't you let me down?
