"The Beautiful Letdown" is the seventh track on Switchfoot's fourth album, The Beautiful Letdown.

Lyrics

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 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 let down
That’s what I’ll forever be
And though it may cost my soul
I’ll sing for free

We’re still chasin' our tails and the rising sun
In 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’m gonna set sight and set sail for the kingdom come
Your kingdom come
Won’t you let me down yeah
Let my foolish pride
Forever let me down

Easy living, not much like your name
Easy dying, you look just about the same
Won’t 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
