PARAMORE- THE ONLY EXCEPTION

Tabbed by Skye

I play this song with barre chords; I find they sound better and closer to the original track.
Here are the chords I use: 

B (in verse, chorus and outro) - 79980x
F#m - x 9 11 11 10 9 
Emaj7 - x79897
C#m - x46654
B (in bridge ONLY) - x24442
E (in bridge ONLY) - 022100 
F# - 244322
A - 577655
E (in outro ONLY) - x79987

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
You are the only exception

VERSE 2
 B            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
           Emaj7
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
You are the only exception

SOLO

BRIDGE
       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#     C
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream, whoa

CHORUS (x2)
B
You are the only exception
F#m      Emaj7
You are the only exception
B
You are the only exception
F#m      Emaj7       B
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.

The last chord of the bridge is not a 'C' it is instead an E. I apologize for overlooking this error :P
