The Only Exception

C chordC Gm chordGm Am chordAm x2

C chordC Gm chordGm
When I was younger I saw my daddy cry
Am chordAm
and curse at the wind
C chordC
He broke his own heart and I watched
Gm chordGm Am chordAm
as he tried to reassemble it

C chordC
And my momma swore
Gm chordGm Am chordAm
that she would never let herself forget
C chordC
And that was the day that I promised
Gm chordGm Am chordAm
I'd never sing of love if it does not exist


But darling
C chordC
You are the only exception
Gm chordGm Am chordAm
You are the only exception
C chordC
You are the only exception
Gm chordGm Am chordAm C chordC
You are the only exception

C chordC
Maybe I know somewhere
Gm chordGm
deep in my soul
Am chordAm
that love never lasts
C chordC
And we've got to find other ways
Gm chordGm
to make it alone
Am chordAm
Or keep a straight face
C chordC
And I've always lived like this
Gm chordGm Am chordAm
keeping a comfortable distance
C chordC
And up until now I've sworn to myself
Gm chordGm Am chordAm
that I'm content with loneliness

Am chordAm
Because none of it was ever worth the risk

C chordC
Well you are the only exception
Gm chordGm Am chordAm
You are the only exception
C chordC
You are the only exception
Gm chordGm Am chordAm Dm chordDm
You are the only exception

C chordC G chordG Dm chordDm C chordC G chordG

Dm chordDm
I've got a tight grip on reality
C chordC G chordG
but I can't let go of what's in front of me here
Dm chordDm
I know you're leaving in the morning

when you wake up
C chordC G chordG
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream
F chordF
Woah

C chordC
You are the only exception
Gm chordGm Am chordAm
You are the only exception x

A# chordA# F chordF C chordC
And I'm on my way to believing
A# chordA# F chordF C chordC
Oh and I'm on my way to believing

About this song

The third single from Paramore's third album, Brand New Eyes. This soulful acoustic number is a heartfelt song about love. (Source The Only Exception Songfacts) Frontwoman and lyricist Hayley Williams told Kerrang! May 9, 2009, that it's "the first time I've been able to write a song about that." She added: "Josh (Farro - guitar) brought me the music and I thought it was so beautiful. I don't know where my head was at when I heard it, but it really hit me.
