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

Ohh—

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

Lagu The Only Exception yang dinyanyikan Paramore mempunyai arti / makna yang sangat mendalam (ngena banget lah dihati).

Exception = Pengecualian

Lagu ini bercerita tentang kenangan sewaktu kecil, ketika ia melihat ayahnya menangis dan keluarganya bercerai. Dari kisah perceraian kedua orang tuanya itulah kemudian muncul sebuah pemikiran, bahwa dia tidak percaya lagi dengan namanya cinta. Baginya, hubungan pernikahan tidaklah membuatnya terkesan, karena pada akhirnya dia menyadari, semua berakhir dengan kesedihan.

Hingga pada suatu ketika dia jatuh cinta. Dia pun menemukan seseorang yang telah merubah pemikirannya tentang cinta.

Meski kehadiran orang yang dicintainya itu dapat merubah keyakinannya tentang makna cinta, tapi dari dasar hatinya masih terbesit keyakinan, bahwa cinta itu tak ada. Namun, sedikit demi sedikit dia pun dapat merubah pemikirannya tentang makna cinta….
