Verse:
          Eb
This is my street
                Fm
I smile at the faces
                   Bb
I’ve known all my life
                     Db
They regard me with pride
                Eb
And everyone’s sweet
                          Ab
They say, “you’re going places!”
   Cm        Eb 
So how can I say that while I was 
Bb                     Cm
away I had so much to hide?
                Bb
“Hey guys, it’s me!
     G7      
The biggest disappointment you 
Cm
know.”
     Ab            Eb
The kid couldn’t hack it
      Ebm         Db      
She’s back and she’s walking real 
 Cm
slow.
         Bb7
Welcome home
     Eb
Just breathe

Chorus:
Eb     Bb      Bbm
Sigue andando el camino
    Ab      B 
Por toda su vida.
   Bb
Respira.
Eb Bb Bbm Ab B Bb
Breathe

Verse:
       Bb     Eb
As the radio plays
                Fm7
Old forgotten boleros
              Eb
I think of the days
                   Db
When this city was mine
                Eb
I remember the praise
                   Bb      
“Ay, te adoro, te quiero,”
   Cm7           Ab
The neighborhood waved
                Bb
Said, “Nina, be brave” and
                Cm
“You're gonna be fine!”
               Bb      
And maybe it’s me,
       G7                       Cm
But it all seems like lifetimes ago
     Ab       Eb             Ebm
So what do I say to these faces
     Db         Cm      
That I used to know
     Bb
“Hey I’m home.”

Bridge: 
Cm    Bb
Mira, Nina, 
Eb                  Ab
No me preocupo por ella.
                          Cm
They’re not worried about me
       Bb                   Eb
Mira, allí esta nuestra estrella.
             G7 
They are all counting on me to 
  Cm 
succeed.
               Bb
Ella si da la talla,
         Eb               Cm
I am the one who made it out!
Ab      
The one who always made the grade
B
But maybe I should have just

Stayed home...
     Cm                      Bb
When I was a child, I stayed wide 
                      Ab
Awake, climbed to the highest place
         G7
On every fire escape, restless
    Cm
To climb 
            Ab
I got every scholarship, saved
      Eb
Every dollar, the first to go to 
G7                          Cm
College, how do I tell them why
                 Ab
I’m coming back home?
         Eb            G7
With my eyes on the horizon
     Cm         Bb Ab
Just me and the gwb asking, 
Eb                    B Bbm
“Gee, Nina, What’ll you be?”

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

Outro, 
Cm    Bb
Nina... 
     Eb Bb Bbm Ab B Bb7 Eb
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

blu willo

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

Ohh

Yeah, that definitely worked, thanks my dude

i love this

wow this is AMAZING
