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

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

VERSE2
...Dm Cmaj7
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
G Dm
Cmaj7
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a
straight face
G Dm Cmaj7
And I've always lived like this, keeping a comfortable distance
G Dm
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
You are the only exception
Dm Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm Cmaj7 Am...
You are the only exception

BRIDGE

Am
I've got a tight grip on reality, but I can't

Am
I know you're leaving in the morning when you wake up
G D C
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream, whoa

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

CHORUS

You are the only exception

You are the only exception
Dm Cmaj7
You are the only exception

OUTRO
