Up All Night

I remember 24 hour stints of awake time. I remember hard crashes after 36+ hours. Because of who my parents were, I couldn't sleep all day. I couldn't cop too much attitude, either.
 
Sometimes I wish for that stamina.
These days, I have too many responsibilities.
And I'm too damned old. :-)
 
 
"Up All Night"
 
When evenin' comes, I am alive
I love to prowl around in the streets
It's the moonlight that controls my mind
Now I've got the power to speak, yeah


(Awake from dusk to dawn)
Watching the city lights
(Stars are shinin' down)
They'll be shinin' down on you and I(
When morning comes)
And I'll hold you till the mornin' light
 
Everybody sing it now
Up all night, sleep all day
Up all night, sleep all day, that's right


Drivin' down the boulevard all alone
The neon signs are callin' your name, callin' your name
Find me in the corner havin' the time of my life
I think you'd wanna do the same

(Awake from dusk to dawn)
Watching the city lights
(Stars are shinin' down)
They'll be shinin down on you and I
(When morning comes)
And I'll hold you till the mornin' light
 
Everybody sing it now
Up all night, sleep all day
Up all night, sleep all day, that's right
Up all night, sleep all day
C'mon c'mon, up all night


Aw baby we could just stay up
24 hours a day


(Awake from dusk to dawn)
Watching the city lights
(Stars are shinin' down)
They'll be shinin' down on you and I
(When morning comes)
And I'll hold you till the mornin' light
 
Everybody sing it with me
Up all night, sleep all day
Up all night, sleep all day
C'mon c'mon, up all night sleep all day
That's right, up all night sleep all day
Up all night
