Dean Allen is an artist who has been called to write, record, and perform his music to inspire the younger generation with love and surrender. He believes this decision wasn't his, but was God pressing on his heart to use the only talent given to him. His Testimony reveals the revelation.

Biography

My music, my performing, and my life are all inspired by God and through lifes experiences that got me to this point in one piece. Writing music comes easy for me and seems to be the only true talent that fills my heart and my passion. I want this to inspire the younger generation and to promote the fact that you can be who you are with all your flaws and that Jesus still loves you and wants a relationship with you. I feel that is what I am called to do. My look and my music are unique and I believe it has a solid impact on those who experience it.

All For You

Written By: Dean Allen

All For You

Welcome home is what I've been feeling down deep in my soul
It took so many roads to get back to where I know my heart belongs
I know there's a reason for me from what I've done to what I've been through
It built me this way and brought me to say Jesus is the only way
We are all prodigals, one way or the other
Always searching to finally discover...
There's a knock on the door
although I've heard it before I've always looked away
But the truth then sinks in, so I let him in to light up the way
Then I heard him say
The spikes, the spears, the fears, the tears
I'd do it all again for you
The spikes, the spears, the fears, the tears
I'd do it all again for you
We are all prodigals, one way or the other
Always searching to finally discover...
There's a knock on the door
although I've heard it before I've always looked away
But the truth then sinks in, so I let him in to light up the way
Then I heard him say
The spikes, the spears, the fears, the tears
I'd do it all again for you
The spikes, the spears, the fears, the tears
My love is all for you.

Witness

Written By: Dean Allen

Witness

I don't know where I would be without you
On a dark road to nowhere with no one else to turn to
The street light tries to show me the way
Around each corner the darkness won't go away
But I know it can't be here to stay
and I know theres got to be a better way
I start to pray about where I want to be
With my eyes still closed I can't deny what I see
Up on a hill theres a light shining bright
On a backdrop of pain, a sacrifice for my life
I'll be a witness to the cross
I'll be a witness to the death
I'll be a witness to the resurrection
That's why I'm going to Heaven
That's why I'm going to Heaven
From then on it seemed to be alright
No longer lonely through the struggles of life
No more pity, only happiness reigns
The sun shines bright and fills me up each day
Up on a hill theres a light shining bright
On a backdrop of pain, a sacrifice for my life
I'll be a witness to the cross
I'll be a witness to the death
I'll be a witness to the resurrection
That's why I'm going to Heaven
That's why I'm going to Heaven.

Until Then

Written By: Dean Allen

Until Then

Where do we go from here
How long do we have to wait
What do we have to do
Why can't we just go now
Is this where we remember your birth
Is this where we bring Heaven to Earth until your moment comes
Is this where our life on Earth ceases
Is this where we meet you Jesus forever more
I know what I have to do
In order to be with you
I'll live through you day and night
And keep you close through my life
You are the son that died on the cross
to bring great gain to us and bring great loss to those who won't see you
To live our lives knowing we'll be with you
carries us through these days of trials and truths for your eternal love.
You bring great joys after the clouds and the rain
We'll live in your light with no more tears and no more pain.

I Can't Do This Alone

Written By: Dean Allen

I Can’t do this alone

As I finally stand alone in my own home
Pondering issues taking place in my life
The anxieties within start to make my head spin
The floor comes up fast as emotions explode
Each issue burns a slow fuse of 24 hour thoughts
Daytime, dream time, there’s no rules to this game
Seems like I’ve been here before, a round trip ticket on this train
Burning it to the end, then starting over again....over again
Know him, love him, accept him, understand him, and admit that....
I can’t do this alone
Lord I know you have a plan, but help me understand
I can’t do this alone
Lord I give myself to you, just bring me home
I can’t handle this world anymore by myself
Take this weakness from me, and fill me with your strength
I know you are there, and I know that you care
So please wrap around me and carry me through........just me and you
Know him, love him, accept him, understand him, and admit that....
I can’t do this alone
Lord I know you have a plan, but help me understand
I can’t do this alone
Lord I give myself to you, just bring me home
just bring me home.

Here For You

Written By: Dean Allen

Here for You

I walked hand in hand with the Lord early one Sunday morn
It was the only day that I felt that I was born
The day always went by so fast, It never would last
It meant six more days to go to have the peace I am looking for
That's when I heard a voice simply saying it is my choice to be with him
Not knowing just what to do
head in hands I start to cry and I spoke to you
I was saying
Lord I'm here for you
Not knowing just what I'm supposed to do
But one way or the other, it's all about the truth
Lord I'm here for you
Now that I know, I'll never walk alone
and that I'll always be heading home
This path doesn't seem so long now that I belong
The darker days that I once knew have long been gone
That's when I heard a voice simply saying it is my choice to be with him
Not knowing just what to do, head in hands I start to cry and I spoke to you
I was saying
Lord I'm here for you
Not knowing just what I'm supposed to do
But one way or the other, it's all about the truth
Lord I'm here for you
I knew nothing about forgiveness
I didn't know my heart could open up this wide
But I know the power of your love
has made these changes deep inside
You've known just what I will do
and you've known that I'll always come through for you
Lord I'm here for you
Not knowing just what I'm supposed to do
But one way or the other, it's all about the truth
Lord I'm here for you.

Last Breath

Written By: Dean Allen

Last Breath

She started off with a prayer in a Seattle song.
It was a hymn of love and laughter that didn't last long.
But a legacy was left that touched countless hearts.
From electrifying love to a treadmill dance.
In a December moment I'll see her in a glance.
And I remind myself she's a heavenly moment away.
All our days have been numbered from long before our time
There's just no way of knowing when it's your turn to say goodbye.

With her eyes wide open, then slowly they close.
There's a look of peace that everyone knows
Is her last breath with us before she moves on.

At that moment a song should have been sung.
Along with a prayer all heads should be hung
To bid her fairwell and give words for her way.
My strength comes from knowing I'll be with her someday.
So recognize your blessings while they sit in front of you.
And take time to simply love them with all that you do.

With her eyes wide open, then slowly they close. There's a look of peace that everyone knows Is her last breath with us before she moves on.

Season's

Seasons

Take me from this place
Lord just bring me home
Is this a test of my faith
In my heart you know I'm yours
I'm yours
I'm yours through the Summer breeze
I'm yours through the Autumn leaves
I'm yours through the Winter freeze
Your spirit blossoms like spring in me
Speak so I may understand
In your arms I still get lost
Continue to hold my hand
My faith in you allows me to trust
To trust
I'm yours through the Summer breeze
I'm yours through the Autumn leaves
I'm yours through the Winter freeze
Your spirit blossoms like spring in me
Lord, I'll stay for a while
As long as you need me here
I need you close by my side
To lift me above my fears
My fears
I'm yours through the Summer breeze
I'm yours through the Autumn leaves
I'm yours through the Winter freeze
Your spirit blossoms like spring in me
I'm yours.
I'm yours.

Lost & Found

Written By: Dean Allen

Lost and Found

Who am I to say, you should go away
I shouldn't be alone with you
But the right here and now
let's me know just how small I am compared to you
Where I come from and where I go
seems so far from the truth
Will you show me the way
I don't want to stay
knowing it's my only chance for you
Come back to me now and show me how
I am ready, my heart tells me it's true
Please fill this emptiness with words so blessed
You can count on me, as I count on you
Now I know which way I need to go
I am guided by the only voice of truth
It's leading me away, to build for another day
on this offer given freely for me and you
I'm lost and found, my life's been turned around
I'm lost and found for you
I'm lost and found, my life's been turned around
I'm lost and found for your truth.

Meet Me In The Meadow

Written By: Dean Allen

Meet me in the Meadow

Come all my friends and join with me
While I break bread and pour the wine
Do this he said in remembrance of me
believe and all will be fine
We took his life as we took his breath
Yet he still rose from his death
Just to bring us together again
To find our peace, but until then you've got to
Meet me in the meadow
Meet me in the meadow
Now we know which way to go
He made the path so we can see the light
With each step we get closer to him
As he pulls us from the darkness of night
If we follow, he'll take the hollow and fill it with his love
He'll be there to guide us through
He'll let you know just what to do
You've got to
Meet me in the meadow
Meet me in the meadow
Meet me in the meadow
Meet me in the meadow

Prayer's

Written By: Dean Allen

Prayers

With my feet in the sand
A vast blue ocean and a cool breeze
While I'm thinking of you
Although I'm still at my desk
My head needs a rest
So I go where I can find the truth
I go to many places never seeing other faces
It's my one on one time with you
To get through each day, I have to get away
It's just the way I pray and stay close to you
You are the one and only Savior
You give me life through my prayers
Oh how beautiful you are
Oh how beautiful you'll be
When I see you face to face eternally
I'll always be with you
Cause it's all I can do to keep my head above the waterline of life
You are the breath of fresh air and the reason I care
So through these prayers I'll cherish you day and night
You are the one and only Savior
You give me life through my prayers
Oh how beautiful you are
Oh how beautiful you'll be
When I see you face to face eternally.
