Verse:
          G
This is my street
                Am
I smile at the faces
                   D
I’ve known all my life
                     F
They regard me with pride
                G
And everyone’s sweet
                          C
They say, “you’re going places!”
   Em        G 
So how can I say that while I was 
D                     Em
away I had so much to hide?
                D
“Hey guys, it’s me!
     B7      
The biggest disappointment you 
Em
know.”
     C            G
The kid couldn’t hack it
      Gm         F      
She’s back and she’s walking real 
 Em
slow.
         D7
Welcome home
     G
Just breathe

Chorus:
G     D      Dm
Sigue andando el camino
    C      Eb 
Por toda su vida.
   D
Respira.
G D Dm C Eb D
Breathe

Verse:
       D     G
As the radio plays
                Am7
Old forgotten boleros
              G
I think of the days
                   F
When this city was mine
                G
I remember the praise
                   D      
“Ay, te adoro, te quiero,”
   Em7           C
The neighborhood waved
                D
Said, “Nina, be brave” and
                Em
“You're gonna be fine!”
               D      
And maybe it’s me,
       B7                       Em
But it all seems like lifetimes ago
     C       G             Gm
So what do I say to these faces
     F         Em      
That I used to know
     D
“Hey I’m home.”

Bridge: 
Em    D
Mira, Nina, 
G                  C
No me preocupo por ella.
                          Em
They’re not worried about me
       D                   G
Mira, allí esta nuestra estrella.
             B7 
They are all counting on me to 
  Em 
succeed.
               D
Ella si da la talla,
         G               Em
I am the one who made it out!
C      
The one who always made the grade
Eb
But maybe I should have just

Stayed home...
     Em                      D
When I was a child, I stayed wide 
                      C
Awake, climbed to the highest place
         B7
On every fire escape, restless
    Em
To climb 
            C
I got every scholarship, saved
      G
Every dollar, the first to go to 
B7                          Em
College, how do I tell them why
                 C
I’m coming back home?
         G            B7
With my eyes on the horizon
     Em         D C
Just me and the gwb asking, 
G                    Eb Dm
“Gee, Nina, What’ll you be?”

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

Outro, 
Em    D
Nina... 
     G D Dm C Eb D7 G
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
