Another AlternativeThose of you who follow me on social sites like Facebook or Twitter know there has been a lot of stuff floating around regarding my band in high school, Another Alternative.  I also posted the lyrics to the song I Do a while back here on the blog.  Since then friends and foe alike have come out of the woodworks with a number of things regarding old recordings that even I don’t posses at the moment.  The good news is that I should have a legit copy of our CD coming from the master recording hopefully soon thanks to a close friend, and I may have another copy headed my way via mail from an old friend of the band who used t be like an acting roadie for us.

However, nothing excited me more than the message I got today from my former lead guitarist, Art Paz, who now fronts the music project Zaptra.  I get a message on Facebook asking for my email address and then shortly after I get a message saying he is sending me the only “high quality” recording of our song ‘Chasing Dreams’, which was performed and recorded live at a battle of the bands show we played.

Because it was one of my proudest musical accomplishments of the time I’ve decided to share it with everyone both for the nostalgia of it as well as a way to give those of you who may have been seeing all of this talk of my musical past some insight into a world I spent a lot of time in.  Another Alternative was an alt rock quartet with influences like The Nixons, Nirvana, and Better Than Ezra.  Below is an MP3 of a live recording of ‘Chasing Dreams’ as well as the songs lyrics.  Hope you enjoy!

Chasing Dreams

Chasing Dreams Lyrics

It’s 12am and my mind still lies awake
It’s 12am and I still can’t sleep a wink
It’s been years since my minds been so damn clear
And this is the first night I’ve slept without you near

But as I chase my dreams of you and me again
And I cry my heart out late at night
And do we sleep underneath the same stars?
And is our love that far apart?

Sometimes the nights with you felt so cold
Sometimes our world was black and white
Your picture is here, but I still sleep here alone
And I guess for now I’ll do well on my own

But as I chase my dreams of you and me again
And I cry my heart out late at night
And do we sleep underneath the same stars?
And is our love that far apart?
(Repeat 2 more times)
