The Only Exception

My latest favourite song! One of those songs that really stirs something in me. Haven’t heard songs like this for a long time. And I love how she phrases the song!  It seems rock bands often have the best ballads huh?

Paramore – The Only Exception

Did up the non-capo version.  Been so long since I played that my wrists and fingers actually hurt : /

B
When I was younger
                           F#m
I saw my daddy cry
                             E   
And curse at the wind
B
He broke his own heart
And I watched
                         F#m          E
As he tried to reassemble it
B
And my momma swore that
                                     F#m       E
She would never let herself forget
B
And that was the day that I promised
                           F#m
I’d never sing of love
                       E
If it does not exist

But darlin’

B                            
*You are the only exception
F#m             E
You are the only exception (*x2)

B
Maybe I know, somewhere
                   F#m
Deep in my soul
                           E
That love never lasts
B
And we’ve got to find other ways
                   F#m
To make it alone
                               E
Or keep a straight face
B
And I’ve always lived like this
                   F#m              E
Keeping it comfortable, distance
B
And up until now
                                                   F#m
I had sworn to myself that I’m content
               E
With loneliness

               E
Because none of it was ever worth the risk

You are the only exception (x4)

C#m
I’ve got a tight grip on reality, but I can’t
       B                                           F#
Let go of what’s in front of me here
C#m
I know you’re leaving in the morning, when you wake up
                 B                                                     F#m
Leave me with some kind of proof it’s not a dream
          E
Ooh Ooh…

B
You are the only exception
F#m              E
You are the only exception (x2)
A               E                      B              
And I’m on my way to believing
              A               E                       B
Oh, and I’m on my way to believing

*I find the E sounds nicer like this x20103 rather than the usual Emaj (x23100), except for the last 2 lines.

Be Ye Glade

Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name
Blessed Be Your name
When I’m found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name
Every blessing You pour out
I’ll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name
Blessed be Your name
When the sun’s shining down on me
When the world’s ‘all as it should be’
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there’s pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name
Every blessing You pour out
I’ll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name
You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

When You’re Gone

I love the lyrics, so very moving, so appropriate given recent events.  In a morbid kind of way, I know I’d feel like this if I didn’t have Jon with me.  Together with the video, the song is even better.  The video brings out the meaning of song, I feel.  Suits it to a T.  Especially touching is the story of the old man and his wife…so sweet…

Avril Lavigne – When You’re Gone

I always needed time on my own
I never thought I’d need you there when I cry
And the days feel like years when I’m alone
And the bed where you lie is made up on your side
When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now

When you’re gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you’re gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you’re gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it ok
I miss you


I’ve never felt this way before
Everything that I do reminds me of you
And the clothes you left, they lie on the floor
And they smell just like you, I love the things that you do
When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now


When you’re gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you’re gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you’re gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it ok
I miss you

We were made for each other
Out here forever
I know we were, yeah
All I ever wanted was for you to know
Everything I’d do, I’d give my heart and soul
I can hardly breathe I need to feel you here with me, yeah

When you’re gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you’re gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you’re gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it ok

I miss you
