This is my street Gm I smile at the faces C I’ve known all my life Eb They regard me with pride F And everyone’s sweet Bb They say, “you’re going places!” Dm F So how can I say that while I was C Dm away I had so much to hide? C “Hey guys, it’s me! A7 The biggest disappointment you Dm know.” Bb F The kid couldn’t hack it Fm Eb She’s back and she’s walking real Dm slow. C7 Welcome home F Just breathe Chorus: F C Cm Sigue andando el camino Bb Db Por toda su vida. C Respira. F C Cm Bb Db C Breathe Verse: C F As the radio plays Gm7 Old forgotten boleros F I think of the days Eb When this city was mine F I remember the praise C “Ay, te adoro, te quiero,” Dm7 Bb The neighborhood waved C Said, “Nina, be brave” and Dm “You're gonna be fine!” C And maybe it’s me, A7 Dm But it all seems like lifetimes ago Bb F Fm So what do I say to these faces Eb Dm That I used to know C “Hey I’m home.” Bridge: Dm C Mira, Nina, F Bb No me preocupo por ella. Dm They’re not worried about me C F Mira, allí esta nuestra estrella. A7 They are all counting on me to Dm succeed. C Ella si da la talla, F Dm I am the one who made it out! Bb The one who always made the grade Db But maybe I should have just Stayed home... Dm C When I was a child, I stayed wide Bb Awake, climbed to the highest place A7 On every fire escape, restless Dm To climb Bb I got every scholarship, saved F Every dollar, the first to go to A7 Dm College, how do I tell them why Bb I’m coming back home? F A7 With my eyes on the horizon Dm C Bb Just me and the gwb asking, F Db Cm “Gee, Nina, What’ll you be?” Verse: F Straighten the spine Bb Smile for the neighbors F Everything’s fine Bb Everything’s cool F The standard reply: C “Lots of tests, lots of papers.” Dm Bb Smile, wave goodbye C Pray to the sky, oh, God! Bb C Dm What will my parents say? Bb C Dm Can I go in there and say, Bb F Fm “I know that I’m letting you down?” Outro, Dm C Nina... F C Cm Bb Db C7 F Just breathe.
