Paramore The Only Exception Lyrics

Last updated: 08/30/2013 09:15:19 AM

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

You are the only exception (x4)

Maybe I know somewhere deep in
my soul that love never lasts.
And we've got to find other ways
to make it alone or keep a straight face.
And I've always lived like this
keeping a comfortable, distance.
And up until now I swore to myself
that I'm content with loneliness,
'cause none of it was ever worth the risk.

But you are the only exception (x4)

I've got a tight grip on reality,
but I can't let go of whats part of me here.
I know you're leaving in the morning, when you wake up,
leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream.


You are the only exception (x8)
And I'm on my way to believing.. (x2)

for you (M) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/30/13

it is very difficult to realize if you truly love someone. Especially when each time you feel a different kind of love. I have felt strong love for two people in my life, but both of them are not here today. They are left in the past and sometimes I wonder if it was real love. Now there is another guy in my life, who made me forget about everything else. He made me feel in such a way that I've never felt before. I dont know if I love him, I havent told him yet. But he is the only exception of my life. He cannot be compared with anyone else. Anyone else is like him. And just a few minutes ago I was talking on the phone with him and the only thing that came into my mind was this song. You are the only exception, because you changed everything. You changed the way I felt, the way I used to think, the way I loved people. Thank you for being a part of my life, thank you for being the most important thing that happened to me the last five years. You are the only exception of my life.

Soul touching ... | Reviewer: Para Fan !!! ( Fahad ) | 8/23/13

Great song | Reviewer: Catt | 8/21/13

I love this song, when I first heard it I thought I'd never have. Anyone who I felt would live up to this but I did and now this is going to be the song for the first dance at the wedding.

Electric | Reviewer: John Wilson | 2/18/13

This song is relaxed so every time I listen to "The Only Exception", It breaks my heart. It all sounds like this
You are the only exception (4x)
Like that but the song is pretty good

The only exception | Reviewer: WeWereLondoners | 1/23/13

This song reminds me of a brief relationship I had last summer with a foreign guy, in a foreign land. We were both foreigners who happened to meet in a foreign land, where we tried to survive together. I believe we both knew that the relationship was not going to last, but we decided to give it a try and take our chances anyway. Tried not to get too serious about it and just looked at it as an experience which we can learn something since we both have never been in a relationshop before, but when I woke up the morning he left, as I read the message he left for me I could feel a huge hole in my heart. we were people who used to be alone and keep our distances from others, and I think he's the only exception for that.

A lovely song(: | Reviewer: Emaleth | 12/28/12

I personally find this song absolutely beautiful. It captures the idea of love that most every person has. We all have that one exception, the only person who can make you laugh when you want to cry or even that person that you picture yourself with long into the future.. but overall a person who is the exception.

awesome | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/30/11

It reminds me of my first relationship. I was eleven and didn't know what to do. But I made an exception and we are still dating two years later I freaking love this song!! I was always scared to date because my mom told me it was a waste of time it's not. And oh yea SCREW YOU OWEN!!! Love ya all

ThHE WORST SONG EVER! | Reviewer: Owen | 12/28/11

Simillar to how hates Li'l Bush with a passion I hate this song with a passion! I REALLY do! Here's my rant.First of all lets start with the beginning! It starts with "when I ws younger I saw my daddy cry."GROW UP! What age roup is Paramore aged at!? Adaults o toddlers Plusnot only do I find the beginning to be childish,I find it to be HRRIBLY annoying.The music to the song sound lame too.If i EVER find Paramore,I would kill those wierdos and make them sink to the bottom of the ocean.Then I would take the song ,smash it with a hammer,then burn it in a furnace,so it would b smashed/burned/melte and never to be heard of again!!!!!!!!!!!

Perfect! | Reviewer: Danii | 9/27/11

So this is me and my boyfriends song simply because we both love paramore. When we fort got together I promised myself that I wouldn't fall in love with anyone and here I am; head over heals madly in love with the guy. I told him this and I told him "You really are my only exception." and it stuck with us. I love him<3(:

I've found mine | Reviewer: lylla | 10/28/10

I heard this song the first time when I watched Glee, and it was one of the cover songs in the movie. I grew up thinking also love will never last, because my mum & dad have been strangers for years even if they're still together.
I've found the person who is the only exception.. we've been through A LOT this year and still together. I love him, his strength to keep up with me and our chemistry. I hope we'll get married next year. Cheers to all, hope you'll find yours too

Perfect | Reviewer: Lucy | 9/30/10

Gosh, I can so relate to this! Gorgeous lyrics...especially "I know you're leaving in the morning." When my boyfriend left for the army, I realised that he was the first and the last boy I'll ever feel fearless for. We're apart now, but this song makes me think of him.

UnfortunanteDeathByScrewdriver | Reviewer: Sun Child | 9/1/10

1. The title has absolutley NOTHING to do w/ my reveiw. It's the name of my brother's band.
2. I love this song, i'm a fan of Hayley Williams.
3. Alot of you think i'ts your 'Life Story' but here, in REALITY, it's just an easy song to relate to. Still, if it does apply to you, glad 2 know you're in love :) Peace Out Suckahs!

the only exception | Reviewer: the only exception | 8/28/10

This is kind of my story... I fell in love some years ago with a younger girl than me... we were two years together, then we split.. she was the only exception for me, now I will never fall in love again, coz everything ends somday... but this is a beautiful song, and so is Hayley.

<3 stunning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/2/10

This song is so great not only for being sung by the cutest girl alive or because of how well it was put together.
Its so grand because every person that takes the time to listen to it normally can relate I know I did.
It didn't per-say change my mind about n\love but it makes me stop to think every once in a while

there's only one execption | Reviewer: sherry | 5/8/10

i love this song,because it just like tell my story. I'm a girl of 19,when i was a kid i saw my mom and dad fighting,almost everyday.
Then i asked,is it what they called love?why we falling in love if it's just hurt?
So i grow up with an idea: love is suck!
untill he came,and broke my old perception..unfortunatelly he has owned.
but,i never regret it. He's the only execption. Now,i'm the suck life.
hope someday can find another execption..
anyway..this is a great song!
