Verse:
          B
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.

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

i love this

wow this is AMAZING

blu willo

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