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

[Verse II]
G                                 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
       *Cmaj7  *Downstrokes only
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 
    G                           D
Let go of what's in front of me here
              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, ohh

G                            |
You are the only exception   |
Dm          Cmaj7            |
You are the only exception   |repeat 2x
G                            |
You are the only exception   |
Dm          Cmaj7            |
You are the only exception   |

    F         C                G
And I'm on my way to believing
       *F        *C               *G   *single strum
Oh, and I'm on my way to believing
