All Night Long
Alexandra Burke Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh oh, ooh, oh no
I see everybody around but it feels like we're in private
I know you want me so bad 'cause you just can't seem to hide it
The lights are moving to the rhythm of the music
When we're together
Everything just comes together, baby
So inspired by the moment we can lose it
I hope you're ready

As long as I see the strobe lights
I'm dancing all night long
When we're together baby
I'm feeling all right
You got me all night long
So tell the DJ play it
All night long (all night, all night, all night, all night)
All night long (all night, night, night, night)
So tell the DJ play it
All night long (all night, all night, all night, all night)
All night long (all night, night, night, night)
So tell the DJ play it

Tonight the admission is free
Now we're shuttin' the club down
We're moving now to the streets
All we got left is love now

Feel my troubles fading to the rhythm of your heart beat
When we're together
Everything just comes together, baby
Every motion calls your name, baby, once you start me
And I hope you're ready

As long as I see the strobe lights
I'm dancing all night long
When we're together baby
I'm feeling all right
You got me all night long
So tell the DJ play it
All night long (all night, all night, all night, all night)
All night long (all night, night, night, night)
So tell the DJ play it
All night long (all night, all night, all night, all night)
All night long (all night, night, night, night)
So tell the DJ play it

And you made me forget all my worries
Helped me put the past behind
Around us this world's in a hurry
While we stand still in time

The lights are moving to the rhythm of the music
When we're together
Everything just comes together, baby
So inspired by the moment we can lose it
And I hope you're ready

As long as I see the strobe lights
I'm dancing all night long
When we're together baby
I'm feeling all right
You got me all night long
So tell the DJ play it
All night long (all night, all night, all night, all night)
All night long (all night, night, night, night)
So tell the DJ play it
All night long (all night, all night, all night, all night)
All night long (all night, night, night, night)
So tell the DJ play it

It's only you and me together
And this feeling's so strong
Wish I could stay like this forever
All night long (all night, all night, all night, all night)
All night long (all night, night, night, night)




Said, all night long
Yeah

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Alexandra Burke's song "All Night Long" depict the experience of clubbing and feeling free from the pressures of daily life. While everyone is surrounding them, the singer and their partner feel as though they are in a private world of their own. The lights and the rhythm of the music create a euphoric moment that allows them to forget their worries entirely. The singer yearns for their partner and is inspired by being together, which makes them lose track of time. They want the DJ to keep playing music until dawn, and they do not want their ecstatic dance to end.


The track is a celebration of the joy and happiness of living in the moment and letting go of your inhibitions. It shows the desire to be with someone and feel completely free and authentic in their company. It is an ode to the love and positive energies that arise in the clubbing environment.

There’s something about the chant of “All night, all night” that is so 2010. I wanna go back there

@joeburreaux7953

Because every song in 2009-2010 had at least one of the lyrics:
- Tonight
- All Night
- Good Feeling
- Put your hands up in the air
- Dance on the floor
- Club

@Jamie-kf2vf

Right!? This song takes me back. I was 21 and about to graduate. Crazy how time flies.
