Sunday Song Lyric

Ellen has pretty good music tastes for a nine-year-old girl.  That’s another way of saying her tastes extend beyond Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha, and the Jonas Brothers.  One of her current favorites is Paramore, a band she learned to like even before the “Twilight” soundtrack made them cool. One of their recent singles is “The Only Exception,” which Ellen likes to sing with her 2-year-old sister in the car. (Madeline only sings the chorus.)  It’s an affecting song, and looks to be Paramore’s highest charting single yet.

When I was younger I saw my daddy cryand curse at the wind
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

Here are the full lyrics, music video, an performance on Ellen, and a live acoustic version.
