Someone could help me with the lyrics for Leon Rosselson song "In The Park"?

Thanks!

In The Park
(Leon Rosselson)

In the streets of the city
I (have felt) the towers falling
And there's nowhere I can run to
Where the people know my name, know my name
When I was a child
I build towers out of stone
And the giants came and (tackle them)
As if it was a game, it was a game

Chorus:
But here in the park
Where the darkness grows around
I am safe, I am free
And the giant (...)
(God) in my Island
Where I am, who I am
And the things that I see
Are all at my command

In the streets of the city
The night falls like a stone
And the light cover the darkness
Where the warning to beware, to beware
When I was a child
I saw palaces of light
Where the sun struck the water
But they said there's nothing there, there's nothing there

In the streets of the city
I can hear the sirens calling
And the eyes that turn to watch me
Turn my body into stone, into stone
When I was a child
I heard a woman singing
And then the song was over
And it left me more alone, more alone

You are pretty close. Here are the words as printed in the 1992 songbook "Bringing the News From Nowhere":

In the streets of the city, I have felt the towers falling
And there's nowhere I can run to
Where the people know my name ? know my name
When I was a child, I built towers out of stone
And the giants came and toppled them
As if it was a game ? it was a game.

But here in the park, where the darkness grows around,
Iam safe, I am free, and the giant palm trees stand,
Guarding my island, where I am who I am,
And the things that I see are all at my command.

In the streets of the city, the night falls like a stone
And the lights carve the darkness
With a warning to beware ? to beware.
When I was a child, I saw palaces of light
Where the sun struck the water
But they said, there's nothing there ? there's nothing there.

In the streets of the city, I can hear the sirens calling
And the eyes that turn to watch me
Turn my body into stone ? into stone.
When I was a child, I heard a woman singing
And then the song was over
And it left me more alone ? more alone.


Hope this helps

R
