[VERSE]

Bb        Bbm     Bb                   Dm
There are moments that the words don't reach
                                   Eb
There is suffering too terrible to name
                                     Gm
You hold your child as tight as you can
      F                 Bb
Then push away the unimaginable
                              Bbmaj7
The moments when you're in so deep
                           Eb
Feels easier to just swim down
                    Gm
And so they move uptown
               F                 Bb
And learn to live with the unimaginable

[INSTRUMENTAL] 
Bb Dm Eb

[VERSE]

          Bb
I spend hours in the garden
 Bbmaj7                     Eb
I walk alone to the store
Eb                Gm
And it's quiet uptown
    F                      Bb
I never liked the quiet before
Bb                                  Bbmaj7
I take the children to church on Sunday
                            Eb
A sign of the cross at the door
       Gm
And I pray
       F                     Bb
That never used to happen before


[CHORUS]

           Bb                    Bbmaj7
If you see him in the street walking by himself
                         Eb
Talking to himself, have pity
                                  Gm
You would like it uptown, it's quiet uptown
           F                      Bb
He is working through the unimaginable
                           Bbmaj7
His hair has gone grey, he passes every day
                                   Eb
They say he walks the length of the city
Eb                        Gm
You knock me out, I fall apart
                F
Can you imagine?

[BRIDGE]

Bb
Look at where we are
Bbmaj7
Look at where we started
Eb
I know I don't deserve you
Gm               F
But hear me out, that would be enough
Bb
If I could spare his life
 Bbmaj7                        Eb
If I could trade his life for mine
Eb
He'd be standing here right now
Gm
And you would smile
F
And that would be enough
                     Gm
I don't pretend to know
Gm                       Dm
The challenges we're facing
                       Eb              Ebm
I know there's no replacing what we've lost
               Bb
And you need time
Bb
But I'm not afraid
Bbmaj7 
I know who I married
Eb                            Gm
Just let me stay here by your side
    F                Bb
And that would be enough

[CHORUS]

Bb                             Bbmaj7
If you see him in the street, walking by her side
                           Eb
Talking by her side, have pity
Eb                            Gm
Do you like it uptown? It's quiet uptown
        F                       Bb
He is trying to do the unimaginable
Bb                                  Bbmaj7
If you see him walking in the park, long after dark
                              Eb
Taking in the sights of the city
Eb                              Gm
Look around, look around, look around
            F                   Bb
They are trying to do the unimaginable

[VERSE]

Bb                                        Dm
There are moments that the words don't reach
Dm                              Eb
There's a grace too powerful to name
Eb                                     Gm
We push away what we could never understand
          F               Bb
We push away the unimaginable
Bb                       
They're standing in the garden
Bbmaj7                   Eb
Standing there side by side
Eb               Gm
She takes his hand
       F
It's quiet uptown
Bb             Bbmaj7     Eb
Forgiveness, can you imagine?
Eb        Gm            F   Bb
Forgiveness, can you imagine?

[CHORUS]

Bb                              Bbmaj7
If you see him in the street, walking by her side
                             Eb
Talking by her side, have pity
Eb                    Gm
Look around, look around
Gm        F                         Bb
They are going through the unimaginable
