I know the lights are out, I know it's getting late
But you're still young and we're wide awake
I've never seen a sky this damn bright
So don't go home, it just ain't right

I got a good idea, I got a wild hair
There's a little spot and we could meet you there
Take the only road straight outta town
Until you see the fire, baby don't slow down

Cause we'll be up all night
Keeping up the moon
I just wanna dance, baby dance with you
We gonna scream and shout until sunrise
We won't close it down
We'll be up all night

Baby, grab some beers and we'll grab guitars
Tell all your friends and we'll ride the stars
We'll gas the fire, try to make it last
And we'll sing it up and you can shake your ass

And we'll be up all night
Keeping up the moon
I just wanna dance, baby dance with you
We gonna scream and shout until sunrise
We won't close it down
We'll be up all night
Alright

We'll be up all night
Gonna feel so free
Only got one life, don't need no sleep
So baby, dance my way
And I'll pass the wine
Wanna kiss your face
And stay up all night

We'll be up all night
Keeping up the moon
I just wanna dance, baby dance with you
We gonna scream and shout until sunrise
We won't close it down
We'll be up all night

Yeah
Up all night

Song facts

"'Up All Night' is about not accepting that once you grow up you can't live the same way as when you were younger. It's refusing to give into age and what people say you're supposed to do at a certain age. It's about capturing life in the moment. A lot of people are scared to be that way. You feel like you reach a certain age and you can't do anything in the spontaneous nature that you did when you were in your teens or early 20s. It's about not relinquishing that and holding onto that innocence of what youth brings.

We got the idea after I started talking about having some friends out the previous night and we sat outside around a fire pit. I was talking about how we had a couple of bottles of wine that we passed around and some girls were dancing and we played guitar. I was saying what an awesome night we had the night before, when we stayed up until three or four in the morning just messing around. It makes you feel alive and really young again. That moment came from a spontaneous moment of us sitting around the house playing guitars and saying, 'Let's start a fire, play some music and get some people over and have a good time.'" - Kip Moore
