This is my street Dm I smile at the faces G I’ve known all my life Bb They regard me with pride C And everyone’s sweet F They say, “you’re going places!” Am C So how can I say that while I was G Am away I had so much to hide? G “Hey guys, it’s me! E7 The biggest disappointment you Am know.” F C The kid couldn’t hack it Cm Bb She’s back and she’s walking real Am slow. G7 Welcome home C Just breathe Chorus: C G Gm Sigue andando el camino F Ab Por toda su vida. G Respira. C G Gm F Ab G Breathe Verse: G C As the radio plays Dm7 Old forgotten boleros C I think of the days Bb When this city was mine C I remember the praise G “Ay, te adoro, te quiero,” Am7 F The neighborhood waved G Said, “Nina, be brave” and Am “You're gonna be fine!” G And maybe it’s me, E7 Am But it all seems like lifetimes ago F C Cm So what do I say to these faces Bb Am That I used to know G “Hey I’m home.” Bridge: Am G Mira, Nina, C F No me preocupo por ella. Am They’re not worried about me G C Mira, allí esta nuestra estrella. E7 They are all counting on me to Am succeed. G Ella si da la talla, C Am I am the one who made it out! F The one who always made the grade Ab But maybe I should have just Stayed home... Am G When I was a child, I stayed wide F Awake, climbed to the highest place E7 On every fire escape, restless Am To climb F I got every scholarship, saved C Every dollar, the first to go to E7 Am College, how do I tell them why F I’m coming back home? C E7 With my eyes on the horizon Am G F Just me and the gwb asking, C Ab Gm “Gee, Nina, What’ll you be?” Verse: C Straighten the spine F Smile for the neighbors C Everything’s fine F Everything’s cool C The standard reply: G “Lots of tests, lots of papers.” Am F Smile, wave goodbye G Pray to the sky, oh, God! F G Am What will my parents say? F G Am Can I go in there and say, F C Cm “I know that I’m letting you down?” Outro, Am G Nina... C G Gm F Ab G7 C Just breathe.
