Only Exception

Revised by Jeff Divine

(Original song by Paramore)

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’ve felt 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 have 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’ll be here in the morning when I wake up.
Show me some kind of proof it’s not a dream.
Oh-oh-oh-ohhh.

You are the only exception. [4x]

You are the only exception. [4x]

And I’m on my way to believing.
Oh, and I’m on my way to believing.

Only Exception – Meaning

There is very little I changed in this song.  It’s a song about a girl falling in love with her Twin Flame.  The only minor changes I made were to change ” Maybe I’ve known somewhere deep in my soul”  to ” Maybe I’ve felt somewhere deep in my soul” and this is the ultimate catharsis she’s seeking in the song initially.  This releases her arrogance and turns a belief into just a feeling that made her life this way, rather than a refusal to let go of something that brings her the great pain she writes about in the song.

We can all feel pain in our Twin Flame journey and this is a song that brings you through that experience quite beautifully.  In the end I also made some revisions since actually changing the core belief that love really is painful and not real actually changes her reality.  So instead of him leaving in the morning when he wakes up, he stays. In the end, she’s on her way to believing.

I know you’re leaving in the morning, when you wake up (I know you’ll be here in the morning when I wake up.)
Leave me with some kind of proof it’s not a dream (Show me some kind of proof it’s not a dream)
Oh-oh-oh-ohhh.
