"Dance Forever" as written by Zachary Porter, Nathan Darmody and Thomas Norris....
Baby get up
Open your eyes now
The world's waking up
You'll realize we'll walk to the beat so suddenly
While we make believe
That this will last forever

We won't sleep 'til three in the morning
This song speaks and it's saying the real thing
It feels like we're living a dream
But tonight
We're gonna make this one right

We'll set the stage and let the records play
On a Saturday
And we can dance forever
We'll burn the light that makes the city sway
When we set the stage
We can dance forever
We can dance together

We're crazy enough
To feel alive now
You've got the stuff
When we arrive we'll
Walk to the beat so suddenly
And then you tell me
That we will stay together

We won't sleep 'til three in the morning
This song speaks and it's saying the real thing
It feels like we're living the dream
But tonight
We're gonna make this one right

We'll set the stage and let the records play
On a Saturday
And we can dance forever
We'll burn the light that makes the city sway
When we set the stage
We can dance forever
We can dance together

Turn around
Just move it
With your feet on the ground
You'll prove it
When you hear the sound
We'll both lose it
Then we'll make the rounds to dance forever

And when the music stops
And we can't wait
For another day
Well we'll just dance forever
We'll hold on tight
And think of Saturdays
If you say my name
We can dance forever

We'll set the stage and let the records play
On a Saturday
And we can dance forever
We'll burn the light that makes the city sway
When we set the stage
We can dance forever

    Baby, get up
    Open your eyes now
    the world's waking up
    you realize we'll walk to the beat so suddenly
    while we make believe
    that this will last forever

    We won't sleep 'til 3 in the morning
    this song speaks and it's saying the real thing
    it feels like we're living a dream
    but tonight
    we're gonna make this one right

    We'll set the stage
    and let the records play
    on a Saturday
    and we can dance forever
    we'll burn the light that makes the city sway
    when we set the stage
    and we can dance forever
    (forever X7)
    and we can dance together

    We're crazy enough
    to feel alive now
    you've got the stuff
    when we arrive we'll walk to the beat so suddenly
    and then you tell me
    that we could stay together

    We won't sleep 'til 3 in the morning
    this song speaks and it's saying the real thing
    it feels like we're living a dream
    but tonight
    we're gonna make this one right

    We'll set the stage
    and let the records play
    on a Saturday
    and we can dance forever
    we'll burn the light that makes the city sway
    when we set the stage
    and we can dance forever
    (forever X7)
    and we can dance together

    Turn around
    just move it
    with your feet on the ground
    you'll prove it when you hear the sounds
    we'll both lose it
    then we'll make the rounds to dance forever

    And when the music stops
    And we can't wait for another day
    Well, we'll just dance forever
    We'll hold on tight and think of Saturdays
    if you say my name
    Then we can dance forever

    We'll set the stage
    and let the records play
    on a Saturday
    and we can dance forever
    we'll burn the light that makes the city sway
    when we set the stage
    and we can dance forever
    (forever x7)
    and we can dance forever

    got these lyrics from elyrics.net/read/a/allstar-weekend-lyrics/…, slightly modified them too.

    Anyways, my interpretation of its meaning:

    Its a fun, catchy song, but I feel it has a deeper meaning. Its about two people whose relationship is not really working out. The guy knows that this will probably not work out, as indicated when he says "while we make believe this will last forever." This also shows that he wants it to work out, as also evidenced by: "and then you tell me we will stay together."

    Dance and music seems to be what brought the two people together - a common interest. They enjoy dancing together, and the guy is yearning for those times when they would dance and have fun together, and wishes they can just dance forever without worrying about other things that are hindering their relationship.

    my favorite part:

    And when the music stops
    And we can't wait for another day
    Well, we'll just dance forever
    We'll hold on tight and think of Saturdays
    if you say my name
    Then we can dance forever

    This part of the song, in my opinion, is the most important bit: this part doesn't have the same catchy upbeat melody as the rest of the song - it is more him saying rather than singing, and it has a hopeful, confident tone to it. It is a very metaphorical part of the song: music represents the harmony in their relationship, and he is anticipating it will end, and they will leave each other. He doesn't want this, so he proposed that they 'dance forever', as in think about the happy parts in their time together. The last line means that if she 'says his name', or acknowledges that he is her love, and keeps it that way, then they will dance forever - they will stay together.
