I was born in Madrid and lived there until the age of 17. Every time I come back, I have the feeling that the city has been gradually sold out. But when I’m there, I still like to walk the streets and talk to people in shops, bars and parks. I love some neighbourhoods and to go out late, and to have something to eat at 5am on my way home. Is that what makes Madrid great? It hasn’t changed much since my old days; the people.

 
Hace tanto tiempo que no he estado allí en Madrid
Hace tanto tiempo que he dejado de sufrir
De Madrid tengo que salir, quiero respirar
Pero me entretengo con amigos en el bar
Hace tanto que me fui de mi ciudad

Dicen que Madrid te mata y no es por la polución
Saliendo cada noche de marcha no termino la canción

De Madrid tengo que salir, quiero respirar
Pero me entretengo con amigos en el bar
Hace tanto que me fui de mi ciudad

Cómo iba a pensar que te echaría de menos
Si cada vez que vuelvo tengo ganas de salir
Si no fuera por tus barrios, si no fuera por la gente
Por aquellos que yo amo y los que hemos enterrado

Hace tanto tiempo que no he estado allí en Madrid
Hace tanto tiempo que he dejado de sufrir


IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE

I’VE BEEN THERE IN MADRID
IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE
I STOPPED SUFFERING

FROM MADRID I WANT TO LEAVE
I WANT TO BREATHE
BUT I GET DISTRACTED AGAIN
WITH MY FRIENDS AT THE BAR

IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE I LEFT MY TOWN

THEY SAY MADRID KILLS YOU
AND IS NOT BECAUSE THE AIR POLLUTION
GOING OUT AND PARTYING EVERY NIGHT
I WILL NEVER FINISH THE SONG

FROM MADRID I WANT TO LEAVE
I WANT TO BREATHE
BUT I GET DISTRACTED AGAIN
WITH MY FRIENDS AT THE BAR


IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE I LEFT MY TOWN

HOW WOULD I THINK THAT I COULD MISS YOU SO
IF EVERY TIME I’M BACK

I HAVE TO TO LEAVE AGAIN

IF IT WASN’T FOR THE NEIGHBORHOODS
IF IT WASN’T FOR THE PEOPLE
FOR THOSE WHO I LOVE
AND THE ONES WE BURIED

IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE

I HAVE BEEN THERE IN MADRID
IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE
I STOPPED SUFFERING
