If you say "Yo soy mayor ahora" is it grammatically correct?

I'm trying to write a song in Spanish. I want the title (in English) to be "I'm Older Now." So I looked it up in my Spanish-English Dictionary and came up with "Yo Soy Mayor Ahora." I was wondering if that is in the right order, or what?

Because you want to say "Older" and not "Old," you should say, "Ahora soy más grande." It's comparative.

"mayor" is the/a comparitive for "grande".

alt text Selena_Murin:

Me gusta la respuesta de Alferraro. No está que eres más viejo sino que eres más maduro. Tambíen, ne está solo para hoy sino está para ahora. Pienso que ahora es más tiempo que hoy. Para mi, me gusta "Ahora soy más madura." ¿Qué piense? I like Alferraro's reply. It is not that you are older, but, that you are more grown-up (or mature). Also, it is not only for today, but, for now. I think that now is a longer time than today. For me, I like "Now I am more mature". What do you think?

Gracias, Samdie.
"Mi madura juventud" is an oxymoron, so it doesn't really work. You're either "Madura" or you're not, so "Más madura" isn't the best either. "Más grande" is a very common expression for this situation. "Mayor de edad" is OK, but not for comparative.

la oracion de "yo soy mayor ahora" es pasar for example; teenager to adulto (17 to 18 old years) or (18-21 old years) you say 'yo soy mayor ahora" is correctly.

It gives connotations of being over 21 or over 65.

Better you say something like "mi madura juventud" or "mi juventud madura"
