DWIGHT YOAKAM lyrics - An Exception To The Rule

DWIGHT YOAKAM
"An Exception To The Rule"

Soft clouds all drift away
Bright sunshine never stays
Warm afternoons turn rainy dark and cruel

A candle's glowing light will die
The purest voices often lie
And with love I've found that all the same is true

Even though I should know better
I guess we could maybe try
There is the risk of looking like a fool

Ah, But I've got a lucky feeling
Just a hunch, don't ask me why
You might be an exception to the rule

Sweet dreams can't be recalled
High hopes can collapse and fall
As the sky keeps turning sadder shades of blue

The strongest promise finally breaks
And only leads to bigger aches
Are lessons that I learned at sorrow's school

Even though I should know better
I guess we could maybe try
There is the risk of looking like a fool

Ah, but I've got a lucky feeling
Just a hunch, don't ask me why
You might be an exception to the rule

Even though I should know better
I guess we could maybe try
There is the risk of looking like a fool

Ah, but I've got a lucky feeling
Just a hunch, don't ask me why
You might be an exception to the rule

Soft clouds all drift away
And bright sunshine never stays
But you might be an exception to the rule
