Lyrics and Music by Josh Farro and Hayley Williams


Intro: Eb | Eb | Bbm6 | G#maj | Eb | Eb | Bbm6 | G#maj

Eb
When I was younger,
               Bbm6
I saw my daddy cry
                 G#maj
And curse at the wind.
   Eb
He broke his own heart,
And I watched as he tried
   Bbm6    G#maj
To reassemble it.

    Eb
And my mama swore that
                    Bbm6
She would never let herself
   G#maj
Forget.
    Eb
And that was the day that I promised
                  Bbm6
I’d never sing of love
                G#maj
If it does not exist.

But darlin’,

Chorus:
     Eb
     You are the only exception.
           Bbm6        G#maj
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Eb
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Bbm6        G#maj
     Well, you are the only exception.

Instrumental: Eb | Eb

      Eb
Well, maybe I know somewhere
           Bbm6
Deep in my soul
                G#maj
That love never lasts.
    Eb
And we’ve got to find other ways
            Bbm6
To make it alone,
                  G#maj
Or keep a straight face.

    Eb
And I’ve always lived like this,
          Bbm6
Keeping a comfortable
G#maj
Distance.
    Eb
And up until now
                                  Bbm6
I had sworn to myself that I’m content
           G#maj
With loneliness,

Because none of it was ever worth the risk.

Chorus:
           Eb
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Bbm6        G#maj
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Eb
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Bbm6        G#maj
     Well, you are the only exception.

Bridge:
              Fm9
   I’ve got a tight grip on reality,
   But I can’t
       Eb                          Bb
   Let go of what’s in front of me here.
                 Fm9
   I know you’re leaving
   In the morning when you wake up.
            Eb                                 Bb      G#maj9
   Leave me with some kind of proof it’s not a dream. Ohh.

Chorus:
     Eb
     You are the only exception.
     Bbm6        G#maj
     You are the only exception.
     Eb
     You are the only exception.
           Bbm6        G#maj
     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#        G#maj        Eb
And I’m on my way to believing.
        C#        G#maj        Eb
Oh, and I’m on my way to believing.
