CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Breathe PIRAGUA GUY:
Sigue andando el camino por toda su vida. Respira

NINA:
Breathe



COMMUNITY:
Y si pierdes mis huellas que
Dios te bendiga.
Respira.

NINA:
This is my street.
I smile at the faces
I've known all my life.
They regard me with pride.
And everyone's sweet,
They say, "You're going places!"
So how can I say that while
I was away, I had so much to hide!
Hey guys, it's me!
The biggest disappointment
You know
The kid couldn't hack it,
She's back and she's walkin' real slow
Welcome home.
Just breathe...

COMMUNITY:
Sigue andando el camino por toda su vida
Respira-

NINA:
Just breathe...

COMMUNITY:
Y si pierdes mis huellas que
Dios te bendiga.
Respira-

NINA:
As the radio plays old
Forgotten boleros
I think of the days when this
City was mine
I remember the praise
Ay, te adoro, te quiero
The neighborhood waved and said
Nina, be brave and
You're gonna be fine,
And maybe it's me,
But iot all seems like lifetimes ago

COMMUNITY:
Te adoro
Te quiero
Respira!
Respira!

NINA:
So what do I say to these
Faces that I used to know?
"Hey, I'm home?"

NEIGHBOR LADY:
Mira Nina

NINA:
Hey...

COMMUNITY:
No me preocupo por ella

NINA:
They're not worried about me

COMMUNITY:
Mira, alli esta nuestra estrella

NINA:
They are all counting on me
To succeed
I am the one who made it out!
The one who always made the grade
But maybe I should have just
stayed home...

COMMUNITY:
Ella si da la talla...
Ah! Ah, aah
Mira Nina

NINA:
When I was a child I stayed
Wide awake, climbed to the
Highest place, on every fire
Escape, restless to climb

COMMUNITY:
Respira...

NINA:
I got every scholarship,
Saved every dollar,
The first to go to college,
How do I tell them why
I'm coming back home,
With my eyes on the horizon
Just me and the GWB, asking,
Gee Nina, What'll you be?

Straighten the spine.
Smile for the neighbors.
Everything's fine.
Everything's cool.
The standard reply,
"Lots of tests, lots of papers."
Smile, wave goodbye,
Ane pray to the sky, oh God...
And what will my parents say?

COMMUNITY:
Nina...

NINA:
Can I go in there and say,

COMMUNITY:
Nina...

NINA:
"I know that I'm letting you down..."

COMMUNITY:
Nina...

NINA: Just breathe...
