[Verse 1]

C5
A candle burning for everything I've ever wanted
C5
A tattoo burned for everything I've ever wanted and lost
Bb(9)
I had a long list of names that I kept in my back pocket
C5
But I've cut it down to one and your name's at the top

[Chorus]
F         Eb6               C5
Won't you share a common disaster?
Eb6        D5(7)          Bb(9)
Share with me a common disaster
D5 Eb6            C5
Oh oh, a common disaster

[Verse 2]

C5
I found myself a friend but he's crooked as a stick in water
C5
So now I'm writing fairy tales to raise the spirit of revenge
Bb(9)
He's got a plan to steal my little sister
 C5
But I'm not too concerned 'cause I will get him in the end

[Repeat Chorus]

[Guitar Solo] 

[Verse 3]

C5
Going to find me someone to share a common disaster
C5
Run away with me from a life so cramped and dull
Bb9
Not to worry too much about the happily-ever-after
C5
Just keep the caddy moving 'til we're well beyond that hill

[Repeat Chorus]
