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

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


But darling
C chordC
You are the only exception
Gm chordGm F chordF
You are the only exception
C chordC
You are the only exception
Gm chordGm F chordF C chordC
You are the only exception

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

F chordF
Because none of it was ever worth the risk

C chordC
Well you are the only exception
Gm chordGm F chordF
You are the only exception
C chordC
You are the only exception
Gm chordGm F chordF 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 F chordF
You are the only exception x

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

Oh and I'm on my way to believing
