Translation with Notes of The Untamed Main Theme

I have been super late to watching The Untamed, but recently received a request to translate the theme song (even though I know there are some translations out there). I personally have different interpretations from some of the other translations out there, so I decided to try it out. The lyrics to all the character songs are so beautifully written–I hope to translate all at some point, but it will take time. 

Although there are versions where Yibo and Xiao Zhan sing the whole thing themselves, I feel as if the lyrics are pretty deliberate in the way it is ordered, and have translated/interpreted the lyrics in such a way. The literal and lyrical is sometimes the same, but I have occasionally made adjustments and have noted where I have done so.

This is a rough translation to Nine Percent’s new song, “I Need A Doctor” in their new album To The Nines. Translation is based off of the lyrics from QQ Music. I will be going back through to edit and clean up some of the translation but wanted to post it first since many are asking for it! Remember that this was a pretty quick, rough translation, so it’s definitely not perfect 🙂
