Hamilton the Musical - It's Quiet Uptown Lyrics

"It's Quiet Uptown" is a song from the Broadway musical Hamilton performed by Renée Elise Goldsberry (Angelica), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), Phillipa Soo (Eliza).

ANGELICA:
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/ENSEMBLE:
The Hamiltons move uptown
And learn to live with the unimaginable

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 AND WOMEN:
If you see him in the street, walking by
Himself, talking to himself, have pity

HAMILTON:
Philip, you would like it uptown
It’s quiet uptown

ANGELICA 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

HAMILTON:
You knock me out, I fall apart

COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON AND ELIZA):
Can you imagine?

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

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

HAMILTON:
Look around, look around, Eliza

COMPANY (EXCEPT HAMILTON AND ELIZA):
They are trying to do the unimaginable

ANGELICA:
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:
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
