This lovely song adumbrates Pericles's recognition of his long-thought dead daughter.
* A different version of this song http://youtu.be/JjoCW3l9VZs *
The stills are taken from an old BBC production with Mike Gwilym, Amanda Redman.
I think it's Miss Redman singing too.
This song was written by Martin Best. (Shakespeare's original version has been lost).
The Subtitles are just wrong; I think the song should read something like below:

A certain house on earth there is
That rooms hath, large and wide.
The house makes noise, the guests make none,
That therein doth abide;
But house and guest continually,
Together forth do slide.

It is the sea, the sea, the sea.

There is an house
through which the fire, Doth pass and does no harm:
Wherein is heat, which none may move from thence,
it is so warm.

A naked house and in that house
guests naked do desire To dwell,
from whence, if boards you draw
Then fall you in the fire,
The fire, the fire, the fire.

Though Pericles is in someways a mess, I like it more than I should.
