Product Description

Jon Allen, acclaimed singer-songwriter from England released his highly anticipated new album, Deep River on July 8th, 2014 via OK! Good Records in the US and Canada.

Deep River sees Allen paying tribute to great tunes of the past; mixing catchy Sixties-inflected rock, soul, and country blues. Since breaking out in the music scene in 2008, Jon has gained a loyal and ever-growing fan base through his talent as a vocalist, guitarist, and song-writer. His songs have provided the perfect soundtrack for hit prime time TV shows such as ‘Homeland’ and ‘Bones’, along with Hollywood blockbusters ‘The Oranges’ and ‘Safe Haven’. With vocals that are eerily reminiscent of a young Rod Stewart, Deep River finds Jon Allen channeling his wide range of influences with songs covering relationships, moving on, and finding oneself.

    • Lyrics

      If I can’t have your love
      I don’t want nothing at all
      If I can’t have your love
      I’ll keep my heart behind the wall

      I don’t want to see the sun
      Don’t want nothing from no one
      And night and day don’t mean a thing to me

      If I can’t have your love
      I don’t want nobody else
      If I can’t have your love
      I’ll keep my sorrow to myself

      Can’t do no good with my time
      Got no rhythm, got no rhyme
      And night and day don’t mean a thing to me

      Come back and revive my senses
      Set fire to my skin
      Give me a reason to feel defenseless
      Give me a reason to start again

      If I can’t have your love
      I don’t want to play the game
      If I can’t have your love
      It would be a lie to love again

      I don’t have no life to live
      If you’ve got no love to give
      And night and day don’t mean a thing to me

    • Lyrics

      In the cold, cold morning
      Thought I heard you calling
      In the half-light just before the dawning of the day
      Half awake and dreaming
      When untapped thoughts were streaming
      Thought I heard you telling me you’d take it all away

      At the turn of midnight
      In the burning firelight
      Did I see your fragile figure dancing in the flame
      Beyond the realms of reason
      Untamed and out of season
      Could you be the missing key that gives my need a name

      Lady of the water
      Lead me to hallowed ground
      Lady of the water
      Take me where I long to be found

      My days are full of faces
      Of racketeers and chasers
      I’m praying for a drop of rain in a street that’s full of sand
      This city can undo you
      Cut its teeth right through you
      I’m looking for that open door and the grace of your hand

    • Lyrics

      Another losing hand’s been played out
      Another dream has turned to dust
      I’m trying to keep myself believing
      It never really meant that much

      And I’m falling back
      Like a barfly to the bottle
      Way down into the black
      Yeah I’m falling back
      And nothing can touch me
      ‘Cause I’m already gone

      I don’t have no explanation
      For why the cards are so unkind
      I’ve let go if every last illusion
      That ever gave me peace of mind

      And I’m falling back
      Like a barfly to the bottle
      Way down into the black
      Yeah I’m falling back
      And nothing can touch me
      ‘Cause I’m already gone

      I don’t have no cause
      No reason to be brave
      Everything I used to stand for
      Is buried in a shallow grave
      Oh, it’s such a waste
      Oh, it’s such a shame
      To see the fields of Eden
      Burning down in flames

    • Lyrics

      You’ve got a way of living, Lord it makes me feel so fine
      You’re the tonic for my troubles that gets me reeling every time

      I’ve never been to China but I’d like to go there now with you
      We could sail out on that slow boat just like the way they used to do

      The hummingbird’s singing his songs
      He don’t give a damn who can hear it
      My heart is singing along
      If I’m not in heaven now I swear I must be near it

      When I think about you darling, Oh it sets my heart aglow
      There’s so many ways you send me that you don’t even know

      The hummingbird’s singing his songs
      He don’t give a damn who can hear it
      My heart is singing along
      If I’m not in heaven now I swear I must be near it

      Gonna find your loving waters, gonna wash my spirit clean
      That river that reminds me life ain’t as cruel as it seems

    • Lyrics

      You’ve got a lot of nerve
      The way you keep me hanging on
      ‘Cause I can’t let you go
      Guess I’ve been loving you too long

      And every time I try to walk away
      Something inside me always makes me stay
      ‘Cause I just can’t put out this fire in my heart

      I gave you all I had
      Wish I could take it all back now
      But I can’t start again
      ‘Cause I got a heart that don’t know how

      And maybe I don’t know what’s good for me
      And I’d be better off for getting free
      But I just can’t put out this fire in my heart

      You got me hooked on you and your bad love
      That only makes me blue
      And what’s sad about it is I can’t do without it

      Sometimes I wish, sometimes I wish we never met
      Then I wouldn’t know this pain
      Wouldn’t know this sadness and regret

      But every little bit of hurt I feel
      Is a part of me that knows love is real
      ‘Cause I just can’t put out this fire in my heart

    • Lyrics

      I’ve been torn down, I’ve been kicked around
      Waiting for the war to end

      It’s been a long time since I crossed the line
      Where the weeping willows bend

      I’m going back to start anew
      To shed these scars, way out in the blue

      Deep river roll me where I need to go
      Give me the answers that only you know

      The river’s in me, It’s all I wanna be
      I just have to let it run

      All the changes that its course arranges
      Are the deeds that must be done

      Tears of joy and tears of pain
      The river takes them, takes them all the same

      I’m doing all I can to follow nature’s plan
      To hold on to the hand of fate
      Maybe I’ll see the sun setting on the way I’ve come
      Before the evening gets too late

      Deep river roll me where I need to go
      Give me the answers that only you know

    • Lyrics

      Gonna miss you in the morning, gonna miss you when I’m gone
      With that bitter sweet sorrow of a heart that’s hanging on

      Will you wait for me?

      Well I ain’t too proud to ask it ‘cause I really need to know
      Will you watch after this fire, keep it burning when I go

      Will you wait for me?

      That big jet plane is leaving to take me far away
      But right here with you darling is where my heart will stay

      Though I got to say goodbye now, though I know we have to part
      Won’t you give a little comfort to the pain that’s in my heart

      Say you’ll wait for me

      ‘Cause I’ll be coming back here when the autumn moon is due
      I’ll be falling at your feet before the leaves of autumn do

      Will you wait for me?

      That big jet plane is leaving to take me far away
      But right here with you darling is where my heart will stay

      Gonna miss you in the morning, gonna miss you when I’m gone
      With that bitter sweet sorrow of a heart that’s hanging on

      Well I’ve crawled when I should have been running
      And I’ve been way too long biding my time
      I don’t care if it ain’t too becoming
      Come hell or high water, I’m gonna get what’s mine

      I ain’t lookin’ for to rob anybody
      I ain’t thinking of committing any crime
      Baby I’m just a man in a hurry
      Come hell or high water, I’m gonna get what’s mine

      I’m tired of chasing someone else’s dream
      Gonna get my freedom, gonna do a little living
      Find out what the world really means

      Well, I don’t wanna die on this mountain
      Ain’t nobody gonna build me a shrine
      So I gotta fight fire with lightning
      Come hell or high water, I’m gonna get what’s mine

      You can stone me and call me a sinner
      But I’ll be damned if I’m waiting in line
      It’s getting late and the light’s getting dimmer
      Come hell or high water, I’m gonna get what’s mine

      I’m tired of chasing someone else’s dream
      Gonna get my freedom, gonna do a little living
      Find out what the world really means

    • Lyrics

      There are times when I lose my step
      Times when I forget who I am
      But I believe there's hope for me yet
      Just as long as you're around

      If I ever feel like giving up
      Near as I can be to defeated
      You always find a way to lift me up
      Catch me when I'm coming down

      I don't know how the story goes
      Or where the journey will end

      But there's a warm sun shining
      In the darkest sky
      There's a silver lining
      Long as you are by my side

      I can't hold on to the restless wind
      I can't stop the rain from falling
      But you're the one I keep believing in
      When my faith is burning low

      Every new day is blind to see
      What tomorrow will bring

      But there's a warm sun shining
      In the darkest sky
      There's a silver lining
      Long as you are by my side

      Fortune telling's not a game I play
      But I know one thing for sure
      If you promised me you'd always stay
      I'd never ask for nothing more oh

      There's a warm sun shining
      In the darkest sky
      There's a silver lining
      Long as you are by my side

      Come back to me baby
      Don’t put me down in my prime
      I may be a bad man but don’t we have a good time?

      It’s a dog eat dog world, babe
      Ain’t nobody to blame
      You’re only picking on me now on account of my name

      All the money’s gone, all the money’s gone
      I can’t walk on water, I can’t even run
      Lord forgive me for the things that I’ve done

      Well it says in the good book
      That you reap what you sow
      But that old green backed woman is the only god that I know

      You can take back my Warhol
      Tear down my chandelier
      But darling, I only told you what you wanted to hear

      I’m in the bunker, baby
      I ain’t seen daylight since you said we’re through
      I ain’t worth nothing, if I’m worth nothing to you

      Lock me up if you want to
      But baby don’t lose that key
      ‘Cause you know that I need you, like I know you need me

      We belong here together
      We’re a match made in Hell
      One day we’ll start over, on the sound of that bell

      All the money’s gone, all the money’s gone
      I don’t know if I’m clever, I don’t know if I’m dumb
      But give me some credit for the things that I've done

      I’ve walked through the badlands all alone in my bed
      I’ve suffered the silence of words left unsaid
      And I figured hope, an impassable trail
      Just the bitter chill of morning, just the distant sun so pale

      I’ve sailed across an ocean of hard luck and lies
      I’ve seen the horizon through desolate eyes
      With a heart full of hurt and a head full of fear
      Till you love-light came shining on the shoreline there so clear
      And I was reborn

      Here in your loving arms, where I belong

      I’ve lived like a stranger out of place and time
      I’ve stood on the high ledge at the edge of the line
      With blood on my shoes and fire in my brain
      I’ve held on to your memory like a rider to the reins
      And now I’m reborn

      Here in your loving arms, where I belong

      Well my days have been dark and my nights have been cold to the bone
      Like a bird on the wing, with the promise of spring I have flown
      Just looking for home

      Here in your loving arms, where I belong

      Well we’re stone dead standing still
      We’re just sitting ducks waiting for the kill
      If we can’t find the way and the will, to keep moving on

      We got fear in our bones and it feels like we’re so far from home
      But it’s only the pain of our growing, so keep moving on

      Maybe it’s not about getting to the Promised Land
      Maybe it’s more about trying

      Well we’re all born in the fight
      We’re all children thrown into the night
      You gotta lift your eyes up to the light, and keep moving on

      ‘Cause there ain’t no going back
      Ain’t no footprints left on the track
      And time never cut any slack, so keep moving on

      Maybe it’s not about getting to the Promised Land
      Maybe it’s more about trying

      You can’t live your life in the past
      Nothing good or bad ever lasts
      You can walk slow or you can walk fast, but keep moving on
