the beautiful letdown

it was a beautiful let down
when i crashed and burned
when i found myself alone unknown and hurt
it was a beautiful let down
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 here
i will carry your cross and your song
but i don't belong
have you found that out yet? are you still pursuing the riches this world has to offer? let me know how that works out for you. it's time to see life differently. time to see it for what it really is.


we're made for something else. just think of love. love is so out-of-this world. think of a good movie with a great ending that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. but that ending isn't reality. however, if you are honest, after seeing such a movie you have a deep longing to see that ending penetrate reality. i'm here to tell you that the happy ending has penetrated reality! in us who are sojourners on our way to something more.
we are a beautiful let down,
painfully uncool,
the church of the dropouts
and losers and sinners and failures and the fools
oh what a beautiful let down
all resolved in the womb
and join us he wants you too

i don't belong here
i don't belong here
i don't belong here
feels like i don't belong here*
*a beautiful letdown, by switchfoot (2004). this is a great song. have a listen.
