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.
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 had sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness,
Because none of it was ever worth the risk.
But 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, oh
You are the only exception.
Oh, and I'm on my way to believing.
