i was wrong. i shouldn’t try to control you. i just.. i’ve never been this happy before. and i realize that i was trying to hold on to how you were making me feel so much that i was strangling you in my hands like a little bird. i get now that in order for this relationship to work i have to open up my hands and let you fly free.

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 reassemble it

and my momma swore that
she would never let herself forget
and that was the day that I promised
i’d never sing of love
if it does not exist

but darling,
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception

maybe i know, somewhere
deep in my soul
that love never lasts
and we’ve got to find other ways
to make it alone
keep a straight face

and i’ve always lived like this
keeping a comfortable, distance
and up until now
i had sworn to myself that i’m
content with loneliness

because none of it was ever worth the risk

well, you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception

i’ve got a tight grip on reality
but i can’t
let go of what’s in front 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

oooh.

you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception
you, are, the only exception

and i’m on my way to believing
oh, and i’m on my way to believing.
