Harvest Moon

“Harvest Moon” is the next song on the Before the Harvest music album. It’s been so long since this song was first recorded that I’m not sure what the purpose was behind putting together this song. Maybe it’s a song that tries to paint a picture with words and music? Thanks for listening!

This song is mastered by my friend Andrew Nagatori.

More of You

The next song on the Before the Harvest album is called More of You. Simply put: it’s a song about how I need God more in this life and how I need to focus less on myself. This song was not originally part of this album, but I ended up replacing an old song from 2008 with this one. Thanks for listening!

Sunshine Day

The next song from the Before the Harvest album is called Sunshine Day. It is another song written in Japanese from back in 2008. This song is about how I want to return to God’s path when I stray away. It’s also a song about how I think there will still be a “sunshine day” in the future, even when things seem tough in the present. For the Christian, we can know there will be a “sunshine day” if we believe in Jesus Christ (Matthew 13:43, John 6:35-40).

Lay It Down

The next song from the Before the Harvest music album is called Lay It Down. This is a Japanese song from back in 2008, but there might be mistakes in my intended meaning. Lyrics for what I meant are in English on this page on this page. This song is about how it seems easier to follow Jesus Christ when I lay down things in my life that I hold on to so tightly. Things like belongings, gifts, and my hardened heart. This is something that is hard for me to put into practice, though.

This song is partially recorded by and fully mastered by my friend Andrew Nagatori.

Slow Time

The next song on the Before the Harvest album is called Slow Time. I think this song was written during a time where I needed to stop racing to my own conclusions or plans and wait on God. This song is not meant to be about just relaxing, but is meant to remind me that I need to wait for God’s timing (instead of my own) in life. This song is also an invitation to follow Jesus Christ. Thank you for listening!

You and Beauty

Here is the next song on the Before the Harvest album; it’s called “You and Beauty”. This is a song that was written back when I was younger and thinking too much about some situations in life that I probably didn’t need to think about as much. In the end, I want to be chasing after God.

Air Balloon

Here is a new song (though of old stock from 2008) called Air Balloon. I think it’s a song that reflects on how my ideas don’t always turn out the way I thought they would. This song is mastered by my friend Andrew Nagatori!
