G G Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7 x2

VERSE1
G G Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
When I was younger I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind
G G Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to re-assemble it
G G Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
And my mama swore that she would never let herself forget
G G Dm Dm
And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love
Cmaj7 Cmaj7
if it does not exist, but darling

CHORUS
G G
You are the only exception
Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G G
You are the only exception
Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7 G G...
You are the only exception

VERSE2
...Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
G G Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight face
G G Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
And I've always lived like this, keeping a comfortable distance
G G Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
And up until now I had sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness

Because none of it was ever worth the risk

CHORUS
G G
You are the only exception
Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G G
You are the only exception
Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7 Am Am...
You are the only exception

BRIDGE
...G D D Am Am G G D D
Am Am
I've got a tight grip on reality, but I can't
G G D D
Let go of what's in front of me here
Am Am
I know you're leaving in the morning when you wake up
G G D D C C
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream, whoa

CHORUS
G G
You are the only exception
Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G G
You are the only exception
Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
You are the only exception

CHORUS
G G
You are the only exception
Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G G
You are the only exception
Dm Dm Cmaj7 Cmaj7
You are the only exception

OUTRO
F F C C G G
And I'm on my way to believing
F F C C G G
Oh, and I'm on my way to believing.
