[Intro]
G  G  Dm  C  2x


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


[Chorus]
             G
But darling, you are the only exception
Dm         C
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm         C              G
You are the only exception


[Verse]
                                  Dm
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul
                C
that love never lasts.
    G
And we've got to find other ways
            Dm                     C
to make it alone or keep a straight face.
    G
And I've always lived like this
          Dm          C
keeping a comfortable, distance.
    G
And up until now I swored to myself
            Dm             C
that I'm content with loneliness,
       G
'cause none of it was ever worth the risk.


[Chorus]
G
You are the only exception
Dm         C
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm         C
You are the only exception


[Solo]
Am  Am  G  D  2x


[Bridge]
           Am
I've got a tight grip on reality,
                G                      D
But I can't let go of whats part of me here.
              Am
I know you're leaving tomorrow, when you wake up,
         G                                  D
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream,
     C   C~
whoa


[Chorus]
G
You are the only exception
Dm         C
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm         C
You are the only exception


[Chorus]
G
You are the only exception
Dm         C
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm         C
You are the only exception


[Outro]
    Dm       C                G
And I'm on my way to believing
    Dm~      C~               G~
And I'm on my way to believing
