The Only Exception ~paramore

When I was younger

I saw my daddy cry

And curse at the wind

He broke his own heart

And I watched as he tried to reassemble it



And my mama swore

That she would never let herself forget

And that was the day that I promised

I'd never sing of love

If it does not exist



But, darling, you are the only exception

But you are the only exception

But you are the only exception

But you are the only exception



Well, maybe I know somewhere

Deep in my soul

That love never lasts

And we've got to find other ways

To make it alone

Or keep a straight face



And I've always lived like this

Keeping a comfortable distance

And up until now, I had sworn to myself

That I'm content with loneliness

Because none of it was ever worth the risk



Well, you are the only exception

Well, you are the only exception

Well, you are the only exception

Well, you are the only exception



I've got a tight grip on reality

But I can't let go of what's in front of me here

I know you're leaving in the morning when you wake up

Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream, oh



You are the only exception

You are the only exception

You are the only exception

You are the only exception

You are the only exception

You are the only exception

You are the only exception

You are the only exception

And I'm on my way to believing

Oh, and I'm on my way to believing
