Hmm I guess this song was the one that inspired the song “Speak Softly Love”
It took me sometime to find the youtube to match .. but i guess the best sung
one was still taken from the movie where Antony Corleone was singing that for
Michael Corleone in Godfather part 3.

I managed have searched through the translation, but I like the one I stumbled
across on the internet.

Title: Brucia La TerraBrucia la luna n’cielu
E ju bruciu d’amuri
Focu ca si consuma
Comu lu me cori
L’anima chianci
Addulurata

Non si da paci
Ma cchi mala nuttata

Lu tempu passa
Ma non agghiorna
Non c’e mai suli
S’idda non torna

Brucia la terra mia
E abbrucia lu me cori
Cchi siti d’acqua idda
E ju siti d’amuri

Acu la cantu
La me canzuni

Si no c’e nuddu
Ca s’a affacia
A lu barcuni

Brucia la luna n’cielu
E ju bruciu d’amuri
Focu ca si consuma
Comu lu me cori

Title: Earth Is BurningThe moon is burning in the sky
And I am burning with love
The fire that is consumed
Like my heart
My soul cries
Painfully

I’m not at peace
What a terrible night

The time passes
But there is no dawn
There is no sunshine
If she doesn’t return

My earth is burning
And my heart is burning
What she thirsts for water
I thirst for love

Who will I sing
My song to

If there is no one
Who shows herself
On the balcony

The moon is burning in the sky
And I am burning with love
The fire that is consumed
Like my heart

This is the how the sicilian version sounds like
