[Verse 1]
D                                      Bm
There are moments that the words don't reach
                                   G
There is suffering too terrible to name
                                    A
You hold your child as tight as you can
                               D
And push away the unimaginable
                              Bm
The moments when you're in so deep
                             G
It feels easier to just swim down
                       A
The Hamiltons move uptown
                                     D (hold)
And learn to live with the unimaginable

[Verse 2]
                           G
I spend hours in the garden
                        Bm
I walk alone to the store
                      A
And it's quiet uptown
                               D
I never liked the quiet before
                                 Bm
I take the children to church on Sunday
                           G
A sign of the cross at the door
          A
And I pray
That never used to happen before

[Chorus 1]
D                             Bm
If you see him in the street, walking by
                                  G
Himself, talking to himself, have pity
Philip, you would like it uptown
     A
It's quiet uptown

He is working through the unimaginable

[Chorus 2]
D                          Bm
His hair has gone grey. He passes every day
                      G
They say he walks the length of the city
                A
You knock me out, I fall apart

Can you imagine?

[Bridge 1]
D
Look at where we are
Bm                       G
Look at where we started
I know I don't deserve you, Eliza
A
But hear me out. That would be enough
D
If I could spare his life
Bm                                 G
If I could trade his life for mine
He'd be standing here right now
A
And you would smile, and that would be enough
D                  Bm
I don't pretend to know
                     G
The challenges we're facing
                       A
I know there's no replacing what we've lost
                  D
And you need time
                    Bm
But I'm not afraid
I know who I married
G                                  A (repeat, and grow faster. stop when the line is sung)
Just let me stay here by your side
That would be enough

[Chorus 3]
D                              Bm
If you see him in the street, walking by her
                                G
Side, talking by her side, have pity
                                   A
Eliza, do you like it uptown? It's quiet uptown
He is trying to do the unimaginable

[Chorus 4]
D                             Bm
See them walking in the park, long after dark
                            G
Taking in the sights of the city
                          A (grow stronger through the next line, then go to single strums)
Look around, look around, Eliza

They are trying to do the unimaginable

[Bridge 2]
D
There are moments that the words don't reach
Bm                               G
There is a grace too powerful to name
                                    A
We push away what we can never understand
We push away the unimaginable
D                            Bm
They are standing in the garden
                     G
Alexander by Eliza's side
                   A
She takes his hand
It's quiet uptown

[Outro]
D            Bm
Forgiveness. Can you imagine?
D            Bm
Forgiveness. Can you imagine?
D                             Bm
If you see him in the street, walking by her
                                G
Side, talking by her side, have pity
A
They are going through the unimaginable

[Ending]
D
