It's Quiet Uptown

📜 Lyrics

[

] 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 [
Angelica Schuyler
Angelica Schuyler
/ ENSEMBLE] The Hamiltons move uptown And learn to live with the unimaginable [
Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton
] 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 [
Angelica Schuyler
Angelica Schuyler
AND WOMEN] If you see him in the street, walking by Himself, talking to himself, have pity [
Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton
] Philip, you would like it uptown It’s quiet uptown [
Angelica Schuyler
Angelica Schuyler
AND WOMEN] He is working through the unimaginable [ALL MEN (EXCEPT HAMILTON)] His hair has gone grey. He passes every day They say he walks the length of the city [
Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton
] You knock me out, I fall apart [COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON AND ELIZA)] Can you imagine? [
Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton
] 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 [COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON AND ELIZA)] If you see him in the street, walking by her Side, talking by her side, have pity [
Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton
] Eliza, do you like it uptown? It’s quiet uptown [COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON AND ELIZA)] He is trying to do the unimaginable See them walking in the park, long after dark Taking in the sights of the city [
Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton
] Look around, look around, Eliza [COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON AND ELIZA)] They are trying to do the unimaginable [
Angelica Schuyler
Angelica Schuyler
] 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 [
Eliza Schuyler
Eliza Schuyler
] It’s quiet uptown [COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON AND ELIZA)] 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
