Of the only exception

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

I thank God that my mom and pop love each other dearly albeit the petty arguments which crop up occasionally. I smile to myself each time they hold hands, chuckle at themselves while watching TV on the sofa and poking fun at each other. As such, I grew up believing in love and such - until one day when I entered into my own relationship and discovered things which I wish I never discovered. After all, ignorance is bliss. Indeed it is. I swore off all boys and never wanted to believe in love again. 

But darlin'

You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception

And then I met you.

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

'Would it last?' I asked myself over and over again. I was happy with solitude - I am free to do whatever I wanted, go out with whoever I wanted, whenever, wherever. But then again, there was no one to share my deepest and darkest secrets, my farts, my silliness, and to go through it all and to laugh about it (best friends don't count - they know everything about me anyway). 

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
Ooh ooh...

We knew right from the beginning when we met that you had to leave the country for work for six months. And maybe another six months as soon as you got back. This might not seem like such a long time for some people, but to me, it would've felt like six years. I hated LDRs because I was afraid that instead of absence making the heart grow fonder, it would be out of sight, out of mind. I hated commitments and the responsibilities that came with it. As such, I didn't want to let you in and told you all this right from the start. 

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 my way to believing

However, after hours, days and months of talking and going out with you, my heart felt something. We have so much in common it's scary. Everything you liked, I liked (except Karaoke). Everything you disliked, I disliked. You can cook, sing, paint, draw, and lots more. You are extremely intelligent (although I love calling you 'bodoh' - in an endearing way of course), rational and thoughtful. All in all you made me believe again.

I are the only exception.

Now, not only would I get to sing my lungs out when I play this song on my lappie or if I hear it over the radio, I would get to do so alongside Paramore themselves on 19 October 2010 at Bukit Jalil National Stadium! This is all thanks to Tune Talk Mobile Prepaid. Let's rock it at the Rock Zone at RM358 per ticket (with me!!!) or you can also choose to opt for the RM268, RM168 or RM98 tickets. You can get them at AirAsiaRedTix or via TicketPro.

Let's rock it!
