From child to woman (De niña a mujer)

Spanish

De niña a mujer

 
Eras niña de largos silencios
y ya me querías bien.
Tu mirada buscaba la mía
jugabas a ser mujer.
 
Pocos años ganados al tiempo
vestidos con otra piel
y mi vida que nada esperaba
también te quería bien.
 
Te extrañaba yo tanto
que al no verte a mi lado
ya soñaba con volverte a ver
y entre tanto te estaba inventando
de niña a mujer.
 
Y esa niña de largos silencios
volaba tan alto que
mi mirada quería alcanzarla
y no la podía ver.
 
La paraba en el tiempo pensando
que no debería crecer.
Pero el tiempo me estaba engañando
mi niña se hacía mujer.
 
La quería yo tanto
que al partir de mi lado
ya sabía que la iba perder
y es que el alma les estaba cambiando
de niña a mujer.
 
La quería yo tanto
que al partir de mi lado
ya sabía que la iba perder
y es que el alma le estaba cambiando
de niña a mujer.

From child to woman

Versions: #1#2#3
You were a very quiet child
and you already liked me
your gaze looked for mine
you were pretending to be a woman.
 
A few years passed
dressed as another person
and without expectations
I liked you as well.
 
I missed you so much
that not having you at my side
I dream of seeing you again.
Meanwhile I was imagining you growing
to a woman.
 
And that quiet child
was flying so high
that my gaze was trying to reach her
But I couldn't see her.
 
I stopped her on time, thinking
that she shouldn't grow up.
But time was cheating me
my child has becom a woman.
 
I loved her so much
that when she left my side
I knew I would lose her
Because her soul was changing
from child to woman.
 
I loved her so much
that when she left my side
I knew I would lose her
Because her soul was changing
from child to woman.

This is a slightly more correct version of what you already have posted. Most online translators give you aliteral translation, and that dosn't always work out. This version should make a little more sense, however, there are some things that just can't be translated.

I have reformatted your translation and added some missing periods. I haven't changed anything else.
