                                          CHORDS I use [relative to capo]
Standard tuning                            A = 320003         Em = x02210
Capo on fourth fret!                      Am = x57765/xx0231   A = xx0232
                                       Gmaj7 = x35453/x32000   G = x32010
INTRO                                                          C = 133211
A  Am  Gmaj7  x2

VERSE1
A                                 Am                    Gmaj7
When I was younger I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind
   A                                                Am          Gmaj7
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to re-assemble it
    A                                      Am         Gmaj7
And my mama swore that she would never let herself forget
    A                                                  Am
And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love 
                Gmaj7
if it does not exist, but darling

CHORUS
A
You are the only exception
Am          Gmaj7
You are the only exception
A
You are the only exception
Am          Gmaj7           A...
You are the only exception

VERSE2
                               ...Am                   Gmaj7
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
    A                                         Am                     Gmaj7
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight face
    A                                        Am        Gmaj7
And I've always lived like this, keeping a comfortable distance
    A                                              Am              Gmaj7
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
A
You are the only exception
Am          Gmaj7
You are the only exception
A
You are the only exception
Am          Gmaj7        Em...
You are the only exception

BRIDGE
...A  A  Em  A  A
           Em
I've got a tight grip on reality, but I can't 
    A                           A
Let go of what's in front of me here
              Em
I know you're leaving in the morning when you wake up
         A                                  A          G
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream, whoa

CHORUS
A
You are the only exception
Am          Gmaj7
You are the only exception
A
You are the only exception
Am          Gmaj7
You are the only exception

CHORUS
A
You are the only exception
Am          Gmaj7
You are the only exception
A
You are the only exception
Am          Gmaj7
You are the only exception

OUTRO
    C          G               A
And I'm on my way to believing
        C          G               A
Oh, and I'm on my way to believing.
