These words were written by the Christian group Switchfoot. The song is called “Beautiful Letdown”, and they describe a person dealing with the pains and frustrations in his life, leading him to the point of understanding what’s really important. “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 doubts, I was trying so hard to fit in, until I found out I don’t belong here – I will carry a cross and a song where I don’t belong.”



And the song ends with the verse: “We are a beautiful letdown, painfully uncool – the church of the dropouts, the losers, the sinners, the failures, and the fools. What a beautiful letdown – are we salt in the wound? Hey, let us sing one true tune - I don’t belong here.”



It’s OK to be disappointed.
