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 Then push away the unimaginable The moments when you're in so deep Feels easier to just swim down And so they 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) 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 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 And that would be enough
(If you see him in the street, walking by her side Talking by her side, have pity) 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, look around (They are trying to do the unimaginable)
There are moments that the words don't reach There's 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 Standing there side by 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) Look around, look around They are going through the unimaginable

Jacquelyn from Canada oh my gods. This song is so amazing, and I think Kelly Clarkson did a really good job covering it. Personally, I prefer the Original Broadway cast Recording of it, since there is more than one person singing, but this version is amazing as well. I cry almost every time I listen to this
