Dwight Yoakam — An Exception To The Rule lyrics

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
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 collapse and fall
As the sky keeps turning
Sadder shades of blue.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/dwight-yoakam-an-exception-to-the-rule-lyrics.html ]
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
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
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...
