C C Gm Gm F F x2

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

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


But darling
C C
You are the only exception
Gm Gm F F
You are the only exception
C C
You are the only exception
Gm Gm F F C C
You are the only exception

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

F F
Because none of it was ever worth the risk

C C
Well you are the only exception
Gm Gm F F
You are the only exception
C C
You are the only exception
Gm Gm F F Dm Dm
You are the only exception

C C G G Dm Dm C C G G

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

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

C C
You are the only exception
Gm Gm F F
You are the only exception x

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

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. Read more on Last.fm.
