Goh Nakamura could have been The Fifth Beatle. That’s probably one of the best compliments you can give an artist but this guy really deserves it. He’s that good. Check out these three gorgeous songs and hopefully you’ll agree:

Somewhere in the nighttime
There’s a dream that would not wake
And the echoes of old wisemen said
“You’ve made a big mistake”

Oh by the way side
Far away from your turnpikes
Far away from your street fights

Elsewhere in the morning
There’s a bell that would not sound
And the lonely got more lonely
And the vicious circle got round

Oh by the way side
Far away from your turnpikes
Far away from your street fights
From your peace pipes

Elsewhere in the mean time
There exists a kinder day
Where innocence
And nonsense
Always go their separate ways

Oh by the way side
Far away from you
Far away…

Somewhere ‘long the timeline
There’s a line that can’t be traced
And lines of endless people
All competing for one face

Oh by the way side
Far away from you…
Far away…

Way Side
Turn Pikes
Peace Pipes
Street Fights

Daylight Savings

Watch the sunset bleed the day and
Soak the sky in red,
And the evening wraps its bandage
Around its wounded head

Let’s send a day like this to infirmary
Whisper when you want me
Breathe a sigh into the wind, and you can
Shout it if you need to get it out and catch my whim
Let’s book the first flight
To where you want to go

And a day like this goes down in infamy
There’s no goodbyes,
And I just can’t believe
That we won’t see him
Anymore
Gone forever
To the void
Butterfly sheds her cocoon
And I don’t know why
But it seemed too soon…

And I sympathize with sorrow for the one I didn’t know
And it’s sad she never found him
And it’s sad he had to go
Before the daylight
Had faded naturally

And I’m waiting at the harbor as your ship is coming in
And your waving in the distance and you’re sailing in the wind
I clench my eyes tight
These tears don’t wanna go

Daylight Saving me an hour to re-
Gain my patience just to wait for you
But I don’t see you anymore
Guess we’re always out the door
But we still have this afternoon
And the setting sun and the fickle moon…

Watch the sunset bleed the day and
Soak the night in red, and the
Stars appear like brilliant scars to
Heal the things I said
Let’s send a day like
This to emergency

Lyrics

The Weight of the World
keeps your feet on the ground
Oh the weight of the world
The weight of the world

One day you’re a butterfly
And the next you’re pinned down
By the weight of the world
Oh the weight of the world

Yesterday
Light as a cloud
The weight of the world surely
Brings you down

‘Cause the world doesn’t wait
For a saint or a clown
It’s the way of the world
It’s the way of the world

Me, oh my
When sadder days come
Won’t you lend me a hand
To help hold up the sun?

‘Cause the weight of the world
Is too much for anyone

Oh the weight of the world
Oh the weight of the world
