[Intro]

B  F#m  E  (x2) 


[Verse 1]

B                                 F#m                   E    
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 re-assemble it.
    B                                  F#m         E
And my mamma swore she would never let herself forget.
    B                                                  F#m
And that was the day that i promised I'd never sing of love if does not 
E
exist. But darling..


[Chorus]

B
You are the only exception
F#m         E 
You are the only exception
B           
You are the only exception
F#m         E   B
You are the only exception


[Verse 2]
                                  F#m                  E 
Maybe i know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts.
    B                                         F#m                    E
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 swored to myself that i'm content with loneliness,
       B
'cause none of it was ever worth the risk.


[Chorus]

    B
But you are the only exception
F#m         E 
You are the only exception
B           
You are the only exception
F#m         E              
You are the only exception


[Bridge]

C#m  B   F#

           C#m
I've got a tight grip on reality,
                B                      F#
But i can't let go of whats part 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. 
     B  C#m
whoa 


[Chorus] (x2)

    F#m       E                B     
And i'm on my way to believing
    F#m       E                B
And i'm on my way to believing

Gosh Finally!
I hated those Capo 4 versions.
The minute i first heard the song I knew it was B, F#m, E.
I was going to tab it out but i couldn't figure out the bridge,
anyways, thanks for being really accurate. (Y)
