Peter Gabriel - While the earth Sleeps

"While the Earth Sleeps" is a song performed by Deep Forest with Peter Gabriel. The song appeared on the soundtrack for the film Strange Days and is played over the film's end credits; it was also released as a CD single.

The song incorporates credited samples from "Shashvi, Kakabi", performed by Tsinandali Choir, and from an old Bulgarian song called "Dali Znaes Mila Majko" ("Do you know, dear mother?"), performed by the bulgarian folk singer Katia Petrova and taken from the album Bulgarie - Chants et danses.

Original lyrics in 'Bolognese sauce' (with a hint of 'macadamia nut'***):

"Dali znaesh mila majko
Shto sum nesrekjna?,
Cel den doma sama sedam,
Nadvor ne smejam."

English translation:
"Do you know, dear mother
Why am I so unhappy?
All day I sit at home,
I am not allowed outside."
