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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bridge:
D      D      D      D
Knock, knock, knock, knock
G             A
They're gonna start to shout soon
D      D      D      D
Knock, knock, knock, knock
G                    A
Ah hell yeah I'll be out soon
Eb      Eb      Eb      Eb
Knock, knock, knock, knock
Ab           Bb
It sucks he left me here alone
Eb      Eb      Eb      Eb
Knock, knock, knock, knock
Ab           Bb
Here in this teenage battlezone
F      F      F      F
Clang, clang, clang, clang
Bb          C
I feel the pressure blowing up
F     F     F     F
Bang, bang, bang, bang
Bb          C
My big mistake was showing up
Gb      Gb      Gb      Gb
Splash, splash, splash, splash
B           Db          Bm
I throw some water in my face
                     E
And I am in a better place
                    G
I go to open up the door
                      A
But I can't hear knocking
    D
Anymore
D    A    G    A    D    A    G    A

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

Chorus 2:
             D             A
......
G              A             D
........................At a party
           G       A
Is there a sadder sight
             D             A
{humming}
G              A             Bm
Michael in the bathroom at a party
          G       A
This is a heinous night
         G                              A
I wish I stayed at home in bed watching cable xxxx
          Bm                             E
Or wish I offed myself instead wish I was never born
         D               A
I'm just Michael who's a loner
   Bm          E
So he must be a stoner
D               A
Rides a PT Cruiser
Bm          E
God he's such a loser
D               A
Michael flying Solo
Bm          E
Who you think that you know
G              A             D
Michael in the bathroom by himself
D    A    G    A    D    A    G    A
All by himself
D    A    G    A    D    A    G    A
All by himself
D             A       Bm   E
All you know about me is my name
G             A             
Awesome party I'm so glad I came
