Up All Night Lyrics

It feels like we've been living in fast-foward
Another moment passing by (U-up all night)
The party's ending but it's now o-ur never
Nobody's going home tonight (U-up all night)

Katy Perry's on replay, she's...

    I can sum it up now.

    He found a girl and really likes her and he wants to tell her so that they can have fun together. ITS NOT ABOUT SEX!! its about having a good time with someone you like.

    Another party song. He wants to stay up ALL night long and doesn't want to miss a thing. He particularly wants to find a girl who he can fall in love with for the night

    This song is about staying at a party really late with some hot chicks and finding somebody to fall in love with for the night and watch the sunrise

    The song UP ALL Night means that they are having a late party with some hot girls that they are into but that doesn't mean that they i mean they should be having a party when Liam say's it feels like we are living in fast forward, it also means that they can do whatever in the UK. in London i mean why on earth would they want to have a party anyways i like this song and whoever said the h word needs to wash her language.
    Love Rachel Tullis follow me on face book,twitter. thanks

    I watched these I think Chattyman with One Direction since I liked the funny part of a fan (my cousin *blush*) calling HARRY HARRY GIVE ME SOME OF YOUR GRAVY!!!!! Then they explained Its not about sex

    Chatty man asked is this about staying up past your bedtime

    They answered No its about 5 young lads having the time of their lives partying and staying up all night it says so in the song

    It does kinda sound like it is about sex, but I don't think it is. I know so many people who like One Direction and all of them would tell you it's about partying. Of course Harry says " People going all the way" and he's hip thrusting (That's why it seems sexually involved) but I really think it's about some guys at a party who are hanging out with some cool girls and wrote a song about it.
    Hope that helped! :)
    This is my opinion! Take it into consideration! :):):):)

    of course its about sex, and the girls in the concerts know that, cuz you see them get excited when harry sings about 'going all the way' cuz the girls are only there cuz they fantasise about going all the way with these hot One direction boys and wish they could

    Look, everyones right! The songs mostly about partying, but there are sexual lines OBVIOUSLY. But who cares? They're all ages 18+, old enough to drink(atleast 18 in UK)-and do drink, and they've dated older women............ anyone ever think about that. They can sing about whatever the hell they want, and do whatever the hell they want * except have sex (they're banned lmao)*.

    Ok whatever people say it is NOT about SEX!!!! I will admit LWWY is about a one night stand but that is the ONLY song they have sung about that kind if thing. This is a happy song where they're single and want to have a good time just being carefree and maybe OTHER PEOPLE are going 'all the way' but they just want to find a girl to keep in touch with who would end up being 'the one'

    Has no meaning and is by a Band that will never sing with emotion like the good old singers. Only reasion im here is for homework.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Sexxx. I mean, they're nineteen or something years old, of course they've got sex on the mind... Plus, really? You think "People going all the way, all the way," doesn't mean to third base? That's just stupid.
