"Up All Night" as written by and Martin/nesler/ ...
It's 3 a.m. and I have been
In my head for quite some time
Every fear, every tear
Has been swirling in my mind
And there are still a hundred reasons
I shouldn't walk away
Do I love you if I leave you?
You have no name

I was up all night
Waiting for some kind of miracle
I was up all night
Feeling alone in the universe
I was up all night

When morning comes
I will tell you (I will tell you)
It's life I have to chase
With every song that I sing
Will be written by your face

And if you're really meant to be
Then you'll be back again
And I watch as your beginning
Turns into the end

I was up all night (I was up all night)
Waiting for some kind of miracle
I was up all night (I was up all night)
Feeling alone in the universe
If it's you or if it's me I you save
I'm still throwing it all away
I was up all night

With a kick inside
In the dark you hide
And we both know how the end will be
In your little tide
With your eyes shut wide
And we both know how the end will be
How it will be

I was up all night (I was up all night)
Waiting for some kind of miracle
I was up all night (I was up all night)
Feeling alone in the universe
If it's you or if it's me I save
I'm still throwing it all away
I was up all night

I was up all night (I'm bending until I break for you)
I was up all night (I'm bending until I break for you)
I was up all night
Night
Night
Night

    General CommentThis song absolutely shatters me. I think it's about a woman who cant decide whether or not the relationship she's in is worth saving, and she suspects it's doing her more good than harm. Who can't relate?

    General CommentI used to think this was about a woman trying to decide whether or not to break up with a guy, but then I listened to it a few more times. Now I think it's about a woman trying to decide whether or not to have an abortion.

    "If you're really meant to be, then you'll be back again" - she could have a child later when she's ready

    "And I'll watch as your beginning turns into the end" - the child's life is over as it was beginning

    "With a kick inside, in the dark you hide" - babies kick, and hide in the dark inside the mother

    "With your little tide, and your eyes shut wide" - little tide could be like the warm, wet environment inside the womb

    "Do I love you if I leave you/You have no name" - she hasn't picked out a name for it yet

    "If it's you or if it's me I save, I'm still throwing it all away" - if she aborts the child, she saves herself and the future she wanted, if she keeps the child, she saves it.

    I don't know if it makes sense to anyone but me, but that's what I think. Maybe I'm stretching it. :-)

    General Commenti totally agree that this song is about abortion, it makes me sad to listen to this song.
