B 
When i was younger i saw my daddy  
F#m 
cry and curse at the
E 
wind.
 
He  
B 
broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to  
F#m 
re-assembl
E 
 
it.
 
And  
B 
my mamma swore she would never let  
F#m 
herself 
 
fo
E 
rget.
 
And  
B 
that was the day that i promised I’d never sing of  
F#m 
love if does not
E 
exist. But darling..

Maybe i know somewhere deep in my  
F#m 
soul that love neve
E 
 
lasts.
 
And  
B 
we’ve got to find other ways to make it al
F#m 
one or keep a straigh
E 
 
face.
 
And  
B 
i’ve always lived like this keeping a co
F#m 
mfortable
E 
 
distance.
 
And  
B 
up until now i swored to myself that i’m con
F#m 
tent with lo
E 
neliness,
 
’cause  
B 
none of it was ever worth the risk.
 
But  
B 
you are the only exception

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

I’ve got a

But i can’t let

I know you’re  
C#m 
leaving tomorrow, when you wake up,
 
Leave me

with some kind of proof it’s not a  
F# 
dream.
