It's Quiet Uptown
There are moments that the words don’t reach There is suffering too terrible to name You hold your child as tight as you can And push away the unimaginable The moments when you’re in so deep It feels easier to just swim down The Hamiltons move uptown And learn to live with the unimaginable I spend hours in the garden I walk alone to the store And it’s quiet uptown I never liked the quiet before I take the children to church on Sunday A sign of the cross at the door And I pray That never used to happen before (If you see him in the street, walking by himself) (Talking to himself, have pity) Philip, you would like it uptown, it’s quiet uptown (He is working through the unimaginable) (His hair has gone grey) (He passes every day) (They say he walks the length of the city) You knock me out, I fall apart (Can you imagine?) Look at where we are Look at where we started I know I don’t deserve you, Eliza But hear me out That would be enough If I could spare his life If I could trade his life for mine He’d be standing here right now And you would smile, and that would be enough I don’t pretend to know The challenges we’re facing I know there’s no replacing what we’ve lost And you need time But I’m not afraid I know who I married Just let me stay here by your side That would be enough If you see him in the street, walking by her side Talking by her side, have pity Eliza, do you like it uptown? It’s quiet uptown (He is trying to do the unimaginable) (See them walking in the park, long after dark) (Taking in the sights of the city) Look around, look around, Eliza (They are trying to do the unimaginable) There are moments that the words don’t reach There is a grace too powerful to name We push away what we can never understand We push away the unimaginable They are standing in the garden Alexander by Eliza’s side She takes his hand It’s quiet uptown (Forgiveness) (Can you imagine?) (Forgiveness) (Can you imagine?) (If you see him in the street, walking by her side) (Talking by her side, have pity) (They are going through the unimaginable)
