This is my street Cm I smile at the faces F I’ve known all my life Ab They regard me with pride Bb And everyone’s sweet Eb They say, “you’re going places!” Gm Bb So how can I say that while I was F Gm away I had so much to hide? F “Hey guys, it’s me! D7 The biggest disappointment you Gm know.” Eb Bb The kid couldn’t hack it Bbm Ab She’s back and she’s walking real Gm slow. F7 Welcome home Bb Just breathe Chorus: Bb F Fm Sigue andando el camino Eb Gb Por toda su vida. F Respira. Bb F Fm Eb Gb F Breathe Verse: F Bb As the radio plays Cm7 Old forgotten boleros Bb I think of the days Ab When this city was mine Bb I remember the praise F “Ay, te adoro, te quiero,” Gm7 Eb The neighborhood waved F Said, “Nina, be brave” and Gm “You're gonna be fine!” F And maybe it’s me, D7 Gm But it all seems like lifetimes ago Eb Bb Bbm So what do I say to these faces Ab Gm That I used to know F “Hey I’m home.” Bridge: Gm F Mira, Nina, Bb Eb No me preocupo por ella. Gm They’re not worried about me F Bb Mira, allí esta nuestra estrella. D7 They are all counting on me to Gm succeed. F Ella si da la talla, Bb Gm I am the one who made it out! Eb The one who always made the grade Gb But maybe I should have just Stayed home... Gm F When I was a child, I stayed wide Eb Awake, climbed to the highest place D7 On every fire escape, restless Gm To climb Eb I got every scholarship, saved Bb Every dollar, the first to go to D7 Gm College, how do I tell them why Eb I’m coming back home? Bb D7 With my eyes on the horizon Gm F Eb Just me and the gwb asking, Bb Gb Fm “Gee, Nina, What’ll you be?” Verse: Bb Straighten the spine Eb Smile for the neighbors Bb Everything’s fine Eb Everything’s cool Bb The standard reply: F “Lots of tests, lots of papers.” Gm Eb Smile, wave goodbye F Pray to the sky, oh, God! Eb F Gm What will my parents say? Eb F Gm Can I go in there and say, Eb Bb Bbm “I know that I’m letting you down?” Outro, Gm F Nina... Bb F Fm Eb Gb F7 Bb Just breathe.
