Lyrics and Music by Josh Farro and Hayley Williams


Intro: G# | G# | Ebm6 | C#maj | G# | G# | Ebm6 | C#maj

G#
When I was younger,
               Ebm6
I saw my daddy cry
                 C#maj
And curse at the wind.
   G#
He broke his own heart,
And I watched as he tried
   Ebm6    C#maj
To reassemble it.

    G#
And my mama swore that
                    Ebm6
She would never let herself
   C#maj
Forget.
    G#
And that was the day that I promised
                  Ebm6
I’d never sing of love
                C#maj
If it does not exist.

But darlin’,

Chorus:
     G#
     You are the only exception.
           Ebm6        C#maj
     Well, you are the only exception.
           G#
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Ebm6        C#maj
     Well, you are the only exception.

Instrumental: G# | G#

      G#
Well, maybe I know somewhere
           Ebm6
Deep in my soul
                C#maj
That love never lasts.
    G#
And we’ve got to find other ways
            Ebm6
To make it alone,
                  C#maj
Or keep a straight face.

    G#
And I’ve always lived like this,
          Ebm6
Keeping a comfortable
C#maj
Distance.
    G#
And up until now
                                  Ebm6
I had sworn to myself that I’m content
           C#maj
With loneliness,

Because none of it was ever worth the risk.

Chorus:
           G#
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Ebm6        C#maj
     Well, you are the only exception.
           G#
     Well, you are the only exception.
           Ebm6        C#maj
     Well, you are the only exception.

Instrumental: Bbm9 | Bbm9 | G# | Eb
              Bbm9 | Bbm9 | G# | Eb

Bridge:
              Bbm9
   I’ve got a tight grip on reality,
   But I can’t
       G#                          Eb
   Let go of what’s in front of me here.
                 Bbm9
   I know you’re leaving
   In the morning when you wake up.
            G#                                 Eb      C#maj9
   Leave me with some kind of proof it’s not a dream. Ohh.

Chorus:
     G#
     You are the only exception.
     Ebm6        C#maj
     You are the only exception.
     G#
     You are the only exception.
           Ebm6        C#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.

    F#        C#maj        G#
And I’m on my way to believing.
        F#        C#maj        G#
Oh, and I’m on my way to believing.
