It's Quiet Uptown Songtext
von Lin‐Manuel Miranda

It's Quiet Uptown Songtext

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


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

He is working through the unimaginable
His hair has gone gray
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
