JRA Presents an “Alternate Reality”

Mr. Aquino gave us a preview of his song “Alternate Reality” back in September, but you can now hear it in it’s entirety – in live studio session form and not formally on record. JRA plays to his strengths, fusing acoustic music with a fair amount of R&B. We liked it back in September and enjoyed it even more now that i’s been heard to completion. Let’s hope a recorded studio version is in the works too!

Sometimes things don’t work out the way you want them to, when you want them to. All because of bad timing.

We all think about it at one time or another. Another reality where things are different. In this song, it’s about someone that longs to be with someone else, but can’t because of his/her current relationship/situation.

LYRICS
shoulda coulda woulda
that’s the theme of this story
cause I could swear in another time you were made for me

in a short amount of time
laughs & smiles were exchanged
after this certain situation
never felt quite the same
cause we know we just can’t be

Maybe an alternate reality
where it’s just you and me
I’m talking where you and I
make each other complete

See baby I know
You got your life & I got mine
It’s just the timing ain’t right
and so the story goes
of a love that could’ve last
but we never could try

Maybe we’ll find a place & time
where everything’s as it should be
Where all of our hopes & dreams don’t exist
because it’s reality
but for now
I’ll leave it in my mind
and I’ll be living thru these thoughts
