Why do you lie to them? (¿Por qué les mientes?)

Why do you lie to them?

Versions: #1#2
Tito “El Bambino” Ft. Marc Anthony - Por Que Les Mientes Lyrics.
 
The one that you usually offend
knew how to give me more than you,
you were my wife.
And even though you call
her by another name,
I'm her man
and now she is my woman
 
Why do you lie to them?
And you sell yourself as an innocent victim
Knowing that you treated me
like I was nothing in front of people
In return, I didn't do it to you
 
Why do you lie to them?
And you sell yourself as an innocent victim
Knowing that you treated me
like I was nothing in front of people
In return, I didn't do it to you
In return, I didn't do it to you
 
I would even ask the wind
That someday you would value my love
You killed the feeling
I got tired of the sadness and the pain
Now today everything is different
I have someone who appreciates
and understands what a heart suffers
Someone who doesn't judge,
Who doesn't justify, who doesn't look for excuses
Someone who talks to find the solution
On the other hand, you don't tell anyone the truth
 
Why do you lie to them?
And you sell yourself as an innocent victim
Knowing that you treated me
like I was nothing in front of people
In return, I didn't do it to you
 
Why do you lie to them?
And you sell yourself as an innocent victim
Knowing that you treated me
like I was nothing in front of people
In return, I didn't do it to you
In return, I didn't do it to you
 
I well know that you thought
That without you I was nothing
You're dying inside
knowing that it isn't like that
You thought you were perfect
But you're mistaken
Now there exists someone
Who can make me happy
 
Today everything is different
I have someone who appreciates
and understands what a heart suffers
Someone who doesn't judge
Who doesn't justify
Who doesn't look for excuses
Someone who talks
To find a solution
On the other hand, you don't tell anyone the truth
 
Why do you lie to them?
And you sell yourself as an innocent victim
Knowing that you treated me
like I was nothing in front of people
In return, I didn't do it to you
 
Why do you lie to them?
And you sell yourself as an innocent victim
Knowing that you treated me
like I was nothing in front of people
In return, I didn't do it to you
In return, I didn't do it to you

Thank you so much for translating this song.

You're welcome.

Only some errors:

·3rd line: who were my wife (is there other way to phrase this in English?)
·4th line: And even though you call (present tense)
·A "to" is missing at the first "In return, I didn't do it you"

A good translation, I can't correct anything else.

Freda     January 14th, 2013

I corrected the wrong tense and the missing "to".
I rephrased "who was my wife", to "you were my wife". It does
sound better but if you have a better suggestion, please let me know.
Thank you for your input. It's easy to miss some things.

Nice translation Smile

Verse 1, line 3: you could also put 'you who were my wife'
Verse 3, line 2/3: you treated me like nothing?

Freda     January 14th, 2013

V1,L3: OK, I like that one.
V3,L2/3: So, you think it should be something like, "you treated me like A nothing"? I thought of using "a nobody", but in spanish it's nada, not nadien.

Vimto12     January 14th, 2013

you could say 'you treated me like I was nothing'
'A nothing' doesn't sound right...

Freda     January 14th, 2013

Ok, I'm using that one, it's way better. I think I got it in all the verses. Thanks , Nisah.
