F F                                            C C
There are moments that the words don't reach
Dm Dm
There is suffering too terrible to name
A# A#
You hold your child as tight as you can
F F
And push away the unimaginable
C C
The moments when you're in so deep
Dm Dm
It feels easier to just swim down
A# A#
The Hamiltons move uptown
F F
And learn to live with the unimaginable


C C
I spend hours in the garden
Dm Dm
I walk alone to the store
A# A#
And it's quiet uptown
F F
I never liked the quiet before
C C
I take the children to church on Sunday
Dm Dm
A A sign of the cross at the door
A# A#
And I pray
F F
That never used to happen before



If you see him in the street
C C
Walking by himself, talking to himself
Dm Dm
Have pity


A# A#
Phillip, you would like it uptown, it's quiet uptown


F F
He is working through the unimaginable


His hair has gone gray
C C
He passes every day
Dm Dm
They say he walks the length of the city


A# A#
You knock me out, I fall apart

F F
Can you imagine?


Look at where we are
C C
Look at where we started
Dm Dm
I know I don't deserve you, Eliza
A# A#
But hear me out, that would be enough

F F
If I could spare his life
C C Dm Dm
If I could trade his life for mine
A# A#
He'd be standing here right now

And you would smile
C C
And that would be enough


Dm Dm Am Am
I don't pretend to know the challenges we're facing
A# A#
I know there's no replacing what we've lost
F F
And you need time
C C
But I'm not afraid

I know who I married
Dm Dm A# A#
Just let me stay here by your side
F F
That would be enough



If you see him in the street
C C
Walking by her side

Talking by her side
Dm Dm
Have pity


Eliza, do you like it uptown
A# A#
It's quiet uptown


F F
He is trying to do the unimaginable

C C
See them walking in the park, long after dark
Dm Dm
Taking in the sights of the city


A# A#
Look around, look around, Eliza


F F
They are trying to do the unimaginable


C C
There are moments that the words don't reach
Dm Dm
There is a grace too powerful to name
A# A#
We push away what we can never understand
F F
We push away the unimaginable
C C
They are standing in the garden
Dm Dm
Alexander by Eliza's side
A# A#
She takes his hand


F F
It's quiet uptown

C C
Forgiveness

Can you imagine?
Dm Dm A# A#
Forgiveness

Can you imagine?

F F
If you see him in the street
C C
Walking by her side

Talking by her side
Dm Dm
Have pity
A# A# F F
They are going through the unimaginable

it sounds really good but I'd suggest putting in Bbm right before he says "and you need time"
