When I was younger I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind.
   B                                                F#m        E
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to reassemble it.

You are the only exception

You are the only exception

                                  F#m                  E 
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.
    B                                       F#m        E
And I've always lived like this keeping a comfortable distance.
    B                                              F#m           E
And up until now I've sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness,
       B
'cause none of it was ever worth the risk.

Well you are the only exception

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.
              C#m
I know you're leaving tomorrow, when you wake up,
         B                                  F#                              
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream.
