It was a beautiful letdown
When I found myself alone
It was a beautiful letdown
That all the riches this world had to offer me

And bitter doubts
Fit in, until I found out
I don't belong here (I don't belong)
I will carry a cross and a song
I don't belong
It was a beautiful letdown
Yeah, for once in a rare blue moon
I'll be a beautiful letdown
And though it may cost my soul

In the rising sun
In a direction no one wins

Well, I don't belong here, I don't belong
With a song where I don't belong
I don't belong here (I don't belong)
I'm gonna set side
For the kingdom come, kingdom come
Won't you let me down, yeah

Easy dying, you look just about the same
Easy living please c'mon and let me down
We are a beautiful letdown
The church of the dropouts
What a beautiful letdown
Hey, let us sing one true tune
I don't belong here (I don't belong)
It goes like I don't belong here
Won't you let me down (I don't belong)
You always let me down (I don't belong)
C'mon and let me down (I don't belong)
Won't you let me down!
