Single of The Day: Paramore – The Only Exception 

PhotobucketI’m not a big fan of Paramore, tapi aku harus mengakui bahwa lagu The Only Exception milik mereka adalah sebuah karya besar yang bisa dinikmati dari segala segi artistik. Musik akustik yang sederhana mengawali lagu ini dengan vokal Hayley Williams yang juga bersahaja. Itulah dua kenikmatan awal yang bisa didapatkan kalau kamu mendengarkan langsung lagu ini. Selanjutnya, lirik yang sangat puitis menggambarkan betapa berartinya sang kekasih, meskipun badai ketidakpercayaan sedang melanda. You are the only exception! Itulah semboyan kecintaan yang tergambar di lagu ini.

Dari album Brand New Eyes, lagu ini secara ajaib berubah menjadi mahakarya Paramore di antara lagu-lagu standar alternative mereka yang lain. Produser Rob Cavallo selain sangat selektif juga mampu menampilkan what’s best of this band. Terbukti, lagu ini berhasil jadi juara di tangga lagu rock di UK. Video klipnya juga sudah muncul menampilkan Hayley dalam balutan tema kasih sayang a la Valentine. Buat kamu yang merasa bahwa beautiful ballad kurang jantan dalam pengungkapan kasih sayang, silahkan merujuk ke lagu ini.

Lyrics:
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
