Lyrics and Music by Josh Farro and Hayley Williams


Intro: D | D | Am6 | Gmaj | D | D | Am6 | Gmaj

D
When I was younger,
               Am6
I saw my daddy cry
                 Gmaj
And curse at the wind.
   D
He broke his own heart,
And I watched as he tried
   Am6     Gmaj
To reassemble it.

    D
And my mama swore that
                    Am6
She would never let herself
   Gmaj
Forget.
    D
And that was the day that I promised
                  Am6
I’d never sing of love
                Gmaj
If it does not exist.

But darlin’,

Chorus:
     D
     You are the only exception.
           Am6         Gmaj
     Well, you are the only exception.
           D
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Am6         Gmaj
     Well, you are the only exception.

Instrumental: D | D

      D
Well, maybe I know somewhere
           Am6
Deep in my soul
                Gmaj
That love never lasts.
    D
And we’ve got to find other ways
            Am6
To make it alone,
                  Gmaj
Or keep a straight face.

    D
And I’ve always lived like this,
          Am6
Keeping a comfortable
Gmaj
Distance.
    D
And up until now
                                  Am6
I had sworn to myself that I’m content
           Gmaj
With loneliness,

Because none of it was ever worth the risk.

Chorus:
           D
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Am6         Gmaj
     Well, you are the only exception.
           D
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Am6         Gmaj
     Well, you are the only exception.

Instrumental: Em9 | Em9 | D | A
              Em9 | Em9 | D | A

Bridge:
              Em9
   I’ve got a tight grip on reality,
   But I can’t
       D                           A
   Let go of what’s in front of me here.
                 Em9
   I know you’re leaving
   In the morning when you wake up.
            D                                  A       Gmaj9
   Leave me with some kind of proof it’s not a dream. Ohh.

Chorus:
     D
     You are the only exception.
     Am6         Gmaj
     You are the only exception.
     D
     You are the only exception.
           Am6         Gmaj
     Well, you are the only exception.

     You are the only exception.
     Well, you are the only exception.
     You are the only exception.
     Well, you are the only exception.

    C         Gmaj         D
And I’m on my way to believing.
        C         Gmaj         D
Oh, and I’m on my way to believing.
