This is my street Dbm I smile at the faces Gb I’ve known all my life A They regard me with pride B And everyone’s sweet E They say, “you’re going places!” Abm B So how can I say that while I was Gb Abm away I had so much to hide? Gb “Hey guys, it’s me! Eb7 The biggest disappointment you Abm know.” E B The kid couldn’t hack it Bm A She’s back and she’s walking real Abm slow. Gb7 Welcome home B Just breathe Chorus: B Gb Gbm Sigue andando el camino E G Por toda su vida. Gb Respira. B Gb Gbm E G Gb Breathe Verse: Gb B As the radio plays Dbm7 Old forgotten boleros B I think of the days A When this city was mine B I remember the praise Gb “Ay, te adoro, te quiero,” Abm7 E The neighborhood waved Gb Said, “Nina, be brave” and Abm “You're gonna be fine!” Gb And maybe it’s me, Eb7 Abm But it all seems like lifetimes ago E B Bm So what do I say to these faces A Abm That I used to know Gb “Hey I’m home.” Bridge: Abm Gb Mira, Nina, B E No me preocupo por ella. Abm They’re not worried about me Gb B Mira, allí esta nuestra estrella. Eb7 They are all counting on me to Abm succeed. Gb Ella si da la talla, B Abm I am the one who made it out! E The one who always made the grade G But maybe I should have just Stayed home... Abm Gb When I was a child, I stayed wide E Awake, climbed to the highest place Eb7 On every fire escape, restless Abm To climb E I got every scholarship, saved B Every dollar, the first to go to Eb7 Abm College, how do I tell them why E I’m coming back home? B Eb7 With my eyes on the horizon Abm Gb E Just me and the gwb asking, B G Gbm “Gee, Nina, What’ll you be?” Verse: B Straighten the spine E Smile for the neighbors B Everything’s fine E Everything’s cool B The standard reply: Gb “Lots of tests, lots of papers.” Abm E Smile, wave goodbye Gb Pray to the sky, oh, God! E Gb Abm What will my parents say? E Gb Abm Can I go in there and say, E B Bm “I know that I’m letting you down?” Outro, Abm Gb Nina... B Gb Gbm E G Gb7 B Just breathe.
