[Intro]
Bb F Gm Eb

[Verse 1]
Bb                                     F
There are moments that the words don't reach
                                   Gm
There is suffering too terrible to name
                                    Eb
You hold your child as tight as you can
                         Bb
Then push away the unimaginable
                              F
The moments when you're in so deep
                          Gm
Feels easier to just swim down
                 Eb
And so they move uptown
                                   Bb
And learn to live with the unimaginable

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

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

[Verse 2]
Bb
Look at where we are
F
Look at where we started
Gm
I know I don't deserve you
Eb
But hear me out, that would be enough

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

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

[Verse 3]
Bb                                      F
There are moments that the words don't reach
                                 Gm
There's a grace too powerful to name
                                     Eb
We push away what we can never understand
                       Bb
We push away the unimaginable
                                F
They are standing in the garden
                        Gm
Standing there side by side
                   Eb
She takes his hand
               Bb
It's quiet uptown

            F
Forgiveness, can you imagine?
Gm          Eb   
Forgiveness, can you imagine?

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