Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I put a capo on the first fret, but it sounds fine anywhere. 
Also, each chord is played for about two measures, so a total of 8 beats.



G                                            D
      There are moments that the words don't reach

                                   Em
There is suffering too terrible to name

                                     C
You hold your child as tight as you can

                          G
And push away the unimaginable

                              D
The moments when you're in so deep

                             Em
It feels easier to just swim down

                     C
The Hamiltons move uptown

                                   G
And learn to live with the unimaginable

                                D
I spend hours in the garden

                    Em
I walk alone to the store

                        C
And it's quiet uptown

                           G
I never liked the quiet before

                                 D
I take the children to church on Sunday

                           Em
A sign of the cross at the door

              C
And I pray

                             G
That never used to happen before


If you see him in the street

D
Walking by himself, talking to himself

     Em
Have pity

                                         C
Phillip, you would like it uptown, it's quiet uptown

                                  G
He is working through the unimaginable


His hair has gone gray

   D
He passes every day

                                    Em
They say he walks the length of the city

                          C
You knock me out, I fall apart

                    G
Can you imagine?


Look at where we are

D
Look at where we started

Em
I know I don't deserve you, Eliza

C
But hear me out, that would be enough

G
If I could spare his life

D                             Em
If I could trade his life for mine

                            C
He'd be standing here right now


And you would smile

                          G
And that would be enough

                   D                          Em
I don't pretend to know the challenges we're facing

                      C
I know there's no replacing what we've lost

             G
And you need time

                       D
But I'm not afraid


I know who I married

Em                            C
Just let me stay here by your side

                        G
That would be enough


If you see him in the street

D
Walking by her side


Talking by her side

     Em
Have pity


Eliza, do you like it uptown

      C
It's quiet uptown

                               G
He is trying to do the unimaginable

                              D
See them walking in the park, long after dark

                            Em
Taking in the sights of the city

                            C
Look around, look around, Eliza

                                  G
They are trying to do the unimaginable

                                        D
There are moments that the words don't reach

                                 Em
There is a grace too powerful to name

                                    C
We push away what we can never understand

                         G
We push away the unimaginable

                                   D
They are standing in the garden

                      Em
Alexander by Eliza's side

                 C
She takes his hand

             G
It's quiet uptown

                D
Forgiveness


Can you imagine?

Em              C
Forgiveness


Can you imagine?

G
If you see him in the street

D
Walking by her side


Talking by her side

     Em
Have pity

C                                 G*(one stroke)
They are going through the unimaginable

The bridge is not correct but other than that, good job!

The chords are just plain wrong.

The main motif of the song (in this key) should be:

G F#/D
There are moments that the words don't reach

C
There is suffering too terrible to name

Em
You hold your child as tight as you can

D G
And push away the unimaginable

-----

It varies in a couple of places but the 4chord and 6minor chord are always opposite of what's written in this tab.
