Verse 1:
E                   B
i am hanging in the bathroom
       A             B      Dbm
at the biggest party of the fall
        E                  B
i could stay right here or disappear
    A             B          E
and nobody'd even notice at all

E                  B
i'm a creeper in a bathroom
         A           B       Dbm
cause my buddy kinda left me alone
        E                          B
but i'd rather fake pee than stand awkwardly
   A                  B          E
or pretend to check a text on my phone

Pre-Chorus 1:
Abm
Everything felt fine
                     B
when i was half of a pair
                Abm
and through no fault of mine
                      A          B
there's no other half there

Chorus 1:
              E             B
Now I'm just Michael in the bathroom
A              B             E
Michael in the bathroom at a party
            A       B
Forget how long its been
         E              B
I'm just Michael in the bathroom
A              B             Dbm
Michael in the bathroom at a party
        A          B
No, you can't come in
    A                        B
I'm waiting it out 'til it's time to leave
    Dbm                      Gb
and picking at grout while I softly grieve
         E               B
I'm just Michael who you don't know
Dbm            Gb
Michael flying Solo
A              B             E
Michael in the bathroom by himself
E    B    A    B    E    B    A    B
All by himself

Verse 2:
E                     B
I am hiding, but he's out there
        A             B     Dbm
Just ignoring all our history
         E                    B
Memories get erased and I'll get replaced
        A             B         E
With a newer, cooler version of me

Pre-Chorus 2:
Abm
And I hear a drunk girl
                                      B
Singing along to Whitney through the door -I wanna dance with somebody!-
       Abm
And my feelings sink cuz it makes me think
            A                                 B
Now there's no one to make fun of drunk girls with anymore

Chorus 2:
             E             B
Now its just Michael in the bathroom
A              B             E
Michael in the bathroom at a party
          A       B
I half regret the beers
         E              B
I'm just Michael in the bathroom
A              B             Dbm
Michael in the bathroom at a party
            A       B
As I choke back the tears
             A                     B
I'll wait as long as I need til my face is dry
             Dbm                           Gb
Or I'll just blame it on weed or something in my eye
         E               B
I'm just Michael who you don't know
Dbm            Gb
Michael flying Solo
A              B             E
Michael in the bathroom by himself
E    B    A    B    E    B    A    B

Bridge:
E      E      E      E
Knock, knock, knock, knock
A             B

Here in this teenage battlezone
G      G      G      G
Clang, clang, clang, clang
C          D
I feel the pressure blowing up
G     G     G     G
Bang, bang, bang, bang
C          D
My big mistake was showing up
Ab      Ab      Ab      Ab
Splash, splash, splash, splash
Db           Eb          Dbm
I throw some water in my face
                     Gb
And I am in a better place
                    A
I go to open up the door
                      B
But I can't hear knocking
    E
Anymore
E    B    A    B    E    B    A    B

Pre-Chorus 3:
            Abm
And I can't help but yearn
                B
For a different time
            Abm
And then I look in the mirror and the present is clear
            A          B
And there's no denying I'm just

Chorus 2:
             E             B
......
A              B             E
........................At a party
           A       B
Is there a sadder sight
             E             B
{humming}
A              B             Dbm
Michael in the bathroom at a party
          A       B
This is a heinous night
         A                              B
I wish I stayed at home in bed watching cable xxxx
          Dbm                             Gb
Or wish I offed myself instead wish I was never born
         E               B
I'm just Michael who's a loner
   Dbm          Gb
So he must be a stoner
E               B
Rides a PT Cruiser
Dbm          Gb
God he's such a loser
E               B
Michael flying Solo
Dbm          Gb

A              B             E
Michael in the bathroom by himself
E    B    A    B    E    B    A    B
All by himself
E    B    A    B    E    B    A    B
All by himself
E             B       Dbm   Gb
