about

These seven songs are tracks from my first CD "Playtime"
It was released in 2002.
I had originally recorded & wrote 15 tracks while I was living in Capetown, South Africa for 11 months. I turned 20 years old while living there.
Now over a decade later, I realize that much of what I learned there provides a compass for my daily decisions & intentions.
This past summer I had the chance to visit with the South African sound engineer Evan Rogers & his wife while they were visiting Los Angeles.
Their visit made me go back and listen to this album that meant so much to me at the time. I hope that this music brings you hope and joy with every listen.
God bless & God speed,
- Adjoa

Track Name: Its All Gonna Be Okay
You don't have to worry
You don't have to be afraid
Lift this load you carry
Its all gonna be okay

Its better than bad
but it sure ain't good
finding it hard to smile
when things don't go
the way we think they should

but I can offer more than I'm sorry
than the common phrase thats too bad
I can offer more than sympathy
leaving you to feel more sad

a prayer to the almighty God
whose promise is I hear your cry
you'll hold you in this time of trial
Wiping each tear from your eye

You don't have to worry
you don't have to be afraid
lift this load you carry
Its all gonna be okay....
Track Name: All I Ask
All I Ask
is that You would be my guiding light
that lights the way
of all I am this day

All I Ask
Is that Heaven's door would be ajar
a little bit
so on Your lap I'd sit
and smile
even for just a little while

All I Ask
is that when I'd fall
I'd feel Your strong arms
come and pick me up
and when you fill my cup

I want to taste the living water that you are
To eat from the never ending jar... of your grace.

I don't for riches
I don't ask for much
All that I ask is that I'd feel Your touch
that I'd feel Your touch

I don't ask for a room with a view
Home is where I find You.
I don't ask for a way to get there fast
to travel a highway and speed on past my call
I don't want that at all

Cause All I Ask
All I Ask

All I Ask
Is that You would remind me once again
That You're my faithful friend

All I Ask
Is the times that I have fearful doubt and loss of hope
That I won't just cope...
I'll grow and heal by Your hand
and trust my heart to Your command.

All I Ask
All I Ask
Track Name: I Look To You
Sweet to the tongue
Soothing to the being
Easy on the ears
And Beautiful in Seeing

Calmness to the Spirit
Ease upon the strain
the sense of your presence Lord Jesus
When I call Your name.

I Look To You My Way
I Look To You My Way
I Look To You My Way
I Look To You

Jesus You're my Savior
My Lord My Life My Love
Father in Heaven
Sent the Spirit from above

All here. I see
Come God. Hold Me
Take the part thats called my heart
and set my spirit free

I Look To You....

I Look To You My Way
I Look To You My Way
I Look To You My Way
I Look To You....
Track Name: To Know You
To know you Lord is my desire
a raging flood, a burning fire
a simple offering to you I give
complete abandon the life I live.

For none is like you in all the earth
compared to riches you have far more worth
And I have found the greatest love
prepares a place for me with him above.

To love completely my heart is soars
Jesus take me... I'm all Yours.
Track Name: Looking Through Your Eyes
This early morning I have come to You
To sort some things out in my head
Its amazing to see how You carefully
hold me in the palm of Your hand

You show me how my ears have been deafened
to Your still sweet gentle voice
This time I need to learn the lesson
of the weight that lies in human choice.

Teach me to live looking through Your eyes
Teach me to live looking through Your eyes

My heart aches for something
that You've told me is not mine to take
I thought my hands were open in case of this,
but these feelings I can't easily shake

But You are a good God
and Your purposes and plans divine.
I know but its true God
that at times they seem to be so unkind.

Teach me to live looking through Your eyes
Teach me to live looking through Your eyes

< musical interlude >

Teach me to live looking through Your eyes
Teach me to live looking through Your eyes
Track Name: Center Of My World
Center Of My World
Hard to fathom
Hard to hold
In my mind
In my heart so cold

I have a hard time standing
A hard time moving too
Have a hard time living without You
The Center of my world

Searching for answers, there must be some to find along the way
Ginding more questions in all I see... driving me to say

What is within me
Whats in You?
A powerful love
A living truth to behold
A story of old

Revelation, Jubilation, Sanctification
So brand New
When the Center of my world is You

I see first Your Face
And oh this place
Doesn't seem so complicated... after all

And I start to fly
like I have the wings of an eagle
Up in the sky
praying there will be a sequel..
to this day...
what I say?

The Center Of My World

<musical interlude>

And I start to fly
like I have the wings of an eagle
Up in the sky
praying there will be a sequel..
to this day...
what I say?

The Center Of My World
Track Name: Love Made Right
Most say "lets carry on til the end, take our chances and lose a friend...
Why not let go on whats not supposed to be,
not love but hurt you... my friend desert you"

So I choose to put a barrier between
Won't hug and kiss you
cause then I'll miss you

I need to be a person, whole, complete
before son, who is the right one for me.

Oh Love Made Right
Doesn't need to put up a fight
No No No No
Love Made Right
Doesn't need to fight
To Be Right....

When looking back I see this love was not a sin
here's the fact babe
You made me grin, made me smile
And the times we'd dance
oh the times we'd spin, made me wanna be held for quite a while.

But something more than longing glances
made me stop and not chances.

Cause Love Made Right
Doesn't need to put up a fight
No No No No
Love Made Right
Doesn't need to fight
To Be Right Child....

A bond once made is not easy to break
So I need to be sure that you are mine to take
For all belongs to God and He holds the plans
so I gotta give up whats not in my hands

Since you are not the one for me to marry
makes me think the one for me must be extraordinary
and when I meet him and we grow old
I want the story of you and I to be told

That Love Made Right
Doesn't need to put up a fight
No No No No
Love Made Right
Doesn't need to fight

Love Made Right.....
