    Question Help with a short translation for a song lyric.

    I need help with a short translation from English to Mexican style Spanish for a lyric to a song I'm writing. Here's the line in English:

    But I can see your heart upon your face, (I can) hear it with/in each of your steps. Can you feel mine (my heart) shine through you?

    Note: The words in parentheses ( ) are for your benefit only and are NOT part of the actual English lyric. Also, I only need to use either "with" or "in", whichever of these makes more sense in Spanish, not both.

    Here's what I got from using the internet to translate my line:

    Pero puedo ver tu corazón sobre tu cara, se puedo oír en cada uno de tus pasos. ¿Puedes sentir mina brillando a través de usted?

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Default Re: Help with a short translation for a song lyric.

    En tu cara veo el sentimento de tu corazon;
    Lo oigo con cada paso que tu tomas;
    ¿Puedes sentir mi corazon?
    Mi corazon resplandece sobre tu persona.

    The phrase "a traves de ti" can replace "sobre tu persona" in the last line.
    I believe this is a fair translation of the meaning behind what you are trying to say.

    Que pases buen dia! Have a good day!

    hi, here's my take based on SRodrig185's version:

    puedo ver lo que siente tu corazón reflejado en tu rostro;
    Lo escucho en cada paso que tú das;
    ¿Puedes sentir mi corazón resplandecer sobre tí?

    Hope it helps!
