The Exception

“The Exception”

“The Exception,” released on To You, 2018. Features Phillip Hammond on violin.

I’m feeling your hands widen
to close the space
between my fingers
we stand
in the night
stargaze and grass
between our toes
chorus:
it’s my favorite time of day
and I’m spending it with you
cause I want you to see me
when I’m wide awake, not dreaming
and maybe nothing’s real
but I know love’s the exception
maybe I’m an optimist
with the wrong perception

I turn
your dad calls
kills the silence
between us
and you kiss me
goodbye
softly
leaving memories
chorus
oh I know
you would never go away
I’ll just hold you here against me
so I know that you are for real
cause this is something from a fairy tale
oh I know
you would never go away
I’ll just hold you here against me
so I know this ain’t a dream
cause sometimes things aren’t what they seem
chorus
