When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
As I watched
As he tried to re-assemble it

And my momma swore
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

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

Ohhhhh

You are the only exception (4x)

And I'm on my way to believing
Oh, And I'm on my way to believing

    I think that this song means that the one you love is the only exception to that one person when you see someone stop on love that person is the only exception
