I don't have a capo and I only have a cheap classic guitar so its really hard 
finding tabs and chords sometimes. So...here's The Only Exception with no capo! 
and it sounds quite about right. 

I use bar chords. it sounds better in my opinion.

    use whichever you find more comfortable, i put both..

A   5.7.7.6.5.5        0.0.2.2.2.0
B   7.9.9.8.7.7        2.2.4.4.4.2
C#  9.11.11.10.9.9     4.4.6.6.6.4
C#m 9.11.11.9.9.9      4.4.6.6.5.4

[Intro]

B  F#m  Emaj7  x2


[Verse 1]

B                                 F#m                    Emaj7
When I was younger I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind
   B                                               F#m          Emaj7
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to re-assemble it
    B                                     F#m         Emaj7
And my mama swore that she would never let herself forget
    B                                                  F#m
And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love 
                Emaj7
if it does not exist, but darling


[Chorus]

B
You are the only exception
F#m         Emaj7
You are the only exception
B
You are the only exception
F#m         Emaj7           B (keep)
You are the only exception


[Verse 2]

                                  F#m                   Emaj7
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
    B                                         F#m                     Emaj7
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight face
    B                                        F#m        Emaj7
And I've always lived like this, keeping a comfortable distance
    B                                              F#m              Emaj7
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]

B
You are the only exception
F#m          Emaj7
You are the only exception
B
You are the only exception
F#m          Emaj7        C#m (keep)
You are the only exception


[Bridge]

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


[Chorus]

B
You are the only exception
F#m          Emaj7
You are the only exception
B
You are the only exception
F#m          Emaj7
You are the only exception


[Chorus]

B
You are the only exception
F#m          Emaj7
You are the only exception
B
You are the only exception
F#m          Emaj7
You are the only exception


[Outro]

    A          E               B
And I'm on my way to believing
        A          E               B
Oh, and I'm on my way to believing.

Yep, it's played without a capo. Capo just makes it a bit easier, I guess.
