THE ONLY EXCEPTION – Paramore

INTRO

G  Dm  Cmaj7  x2

VERSE1

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

VERSE2

…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

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

…G  D  Am  G  D

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, whoa

CHORUS

G

You are the only exception

Dm          Cmaj7

You are the only exception

G

You are the only exception

Dm          Cmaj7

You are the only exception

CHORUS

G

You are the only exception

Dm          Cmaj7

You are the only exception

G

You are the only exception

Dm          Cmaj7

You are the only exception

OUTRO

F          C               G

And I’m on my way to believing

F          C               G

Oh, and I’m on my way to believing.
