Verse:
          E
This is my street
                Gbm
I smile at the faces
                   B
I’ve known all my life
                     D
They regard me with pride
                E
And everyone’s sweet
                          A
They say, “you’re going places!”
   Dbm        E 
So how can I say that while I was 
B                     Dbm
away I had so much to hide?
                B
“Hey guys, it’s me!
     Ab7      
The biggest disappointment you 
Dbm
know.”
     A            E
The kid couldn’t hack it
      Em         D      
She’s back and she’s walking real 
 Dbm
slow.
         B7
Welcome home
     E
Just breathe

Chorus:
E     B      Bm
Sigue andando el camino
    A      C 
Por toda su vida.
   B
Respira.
E B Bm A C B
Breathe

Verse:
       B     E
As the radio plays
                Gbm7
Old forgotten boleros
              E
I think of the days
                   D
When this city was mine
                E
I remember the praise
                   B      
“Ay, te adoro, te quiero,”
   Dbm7           A
The neighborhood waved
                B
Said, “Nina, be brave” and
                Dbm
“You're gonna be fine!”
               B      
And maybe it’s me,
       Ab7                       Dbm
But it all seems like lifetimes ago
     A       E             Em
So what do I say to these faces
     D         Dbm      
That I used to know
     B
“Hey I’m home.”

Bridge: 
Dbm    B
Mira, Nina, 
E                  A
No me preocupo por ella.
                          Dbm
They’re not worried about me
       B                   E
Mira, allí esta nuestra estrella.
             Ab7 
They are all counting on me to 
  Dbm 
succeed.
               B
Ella si da la talla,
         E               Dbm
I am the one who made it out!
A      
The one who always made the grade
C
But maybe I should have just

Stayed home...
     Dbm                      B
When I was a child, I stayed wide 
                      A
Awake, climbed to the highest place
         Ab7
On every fire escape, restless
    Dbm
To climb 
            A
I got every scholarship, saved
      E
Every dollar, the first to go to 
Ab7                          Dbm
College, how do I tell them why
                 A
I’m coming back home?
         E            Ab7
With my eyes on the horizon
     Dbm         B A
Just me and the gwb asking, 
E                    C Bm
“Gee, Nina, What’ll you be?”

Verse:
               E
Straighten the spine
               A
Smile for the neighbors
             E
Everything’s fine
             A
Everything’s cool
               E
The standard reply: 
                         B
“Lots of tests, lots of papers.”
Dbm              A
Smile, wave goodbye
            B
Pray to the sky, oh, God!
A            B       Dbm
What will my parents say?
    A       B         Dbm
Can I go in there and say,
   A              E           Em
“I know that I’m letting you down?”

Outro, 
Dbm    B
Nina... 
     E B Bm A C B7 E
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
