Verse:
          Ab
This is my street
                Bbm
I smile at the faces
                   Eb
I’ve known all my life
                     Gb
They regard me with pride
                Ab
And everyone’s sweet
                          Db
They say, “you’re going places!”
   Fm        Ab 
So how can I say that while I was 
Eb                     Fm
away I had so much to hide?
                Eb
“Hey guys, it’s me!
     C7      
The biggest disappointment you 
Fm
know.”
     Db            Ab
The kid couldn’t hack it
      Abm         Gb      
She’s back and she’s walking real 
 Fm
slow.
         Eb7
Welcome home
     Ab
Just breathe

Chorus:
Ab     Eb      Ebm
Sigue andando el camino
    Db      E 
Por toda su vida.
   Eb
Respira.
Ab Eb Ebm Db E Eb
Breathe

Verse:
       Eb     Ab
As the radio plays
                Bbm7
Old forgotten boleros
              Ab
I think of the days
                   Gb
When this city was mine
                Ab
I remember the praise
                   Eb      
“Ay, te adoro, te quiero,”
   Fm7           Db
The neighborhood waved
                Eb
Said, “Nina, be brave” and
                Fm
“You're gonna be fine!”
               Eb      
And maybe it’s me,
       C7                       Fm
But it all seems like lifetimes ago
     Db       Ab             Abm
So what do I say to these faces
     Gb         Fm      
That I used to know
     Eb
“Hey I’m home.”

Bridge: 
Fm    Eb
Mira, Nina, 
Ab                  Db
No me preocupo por ella.
                          Fm
They’re not worried about me
       Eb                   Ab
Mira, allí esta nuestra estrella.
             C7 
They are all counting on me to 
  Fm 
succeed.
               Eb
Ella si da la talla,
         Ab               Fm
I am the one who made it out!
Db      
The one who always made the grade
E
But maybe I should have just

Stayed home...
     Fm                      Eb
When I was a child, I stayed wide 
                      Db
Awake, climbed to the highest place
         C7
On every fire escape, restless
    Fm
To climb 
            Db
I got every scholarship, saved
      Ab
Every dollar, the first to go to 
C7                          Fm
College, how do I tell them why
                 Db
I’m coming back home?
         Ab            C7
With my eyes on the horizon
     Fm         Eb Db
Just me and the gwb asking, 
Ab                    E Ebm
“Gee, Nina, What’ll you be?”

Verse:
               Ab
Straighten the spine
               Db
Smile for the neighbors
             Ab
Everything’s fine
             Db
Everything’s cool
               Ab
The standard reply: 
                         Eb
“Lots of tests, lots of papers.”
Fm              Db
Smile, wave goodbye
            Eb
Pray to the sky, oh, God!
Db            Eb       Fm
What will my parents say?
    Db       Eb         Fm
Can I go in there and say,
   Db              Ab           Abm
“I know that I’m letting you down?”

Outro, 
Fm    Eb
Nina... 
     Ab Eb Ebm Db E Eb7 Ab
Just breathe.

i tried to play and sing this but the chords are wrong:/ sounded really weird with the melody

rebekah

it’s just in a different key! if you use a capo or transpose you should be able to get it right

blu willo

The original chords sound better if you put a capo on 3

Ohh

Yeah, that definitely worked, thanks my dude

i love this

wow this is AMAZING
