"All Night Long" as written by Tony Martin, Neil Thrasher and David Lee Murphy....
When the night is closing
Eyes are running wild
Then I hear you humming
All night long

The sign I see it
Tell me am I true
All I need from you is
All I see

This city's paved with cold
Playboys buying fun
Seems there is no hunter left
Without his hunting gun

Can you feel the light
The air is wild open
Oh you see the light it's coming through
It's there in the distance
Always offered to me
Always coming over a hill

Oh your see-saw smile
Lasts me all night long
Like a siren's curl
When the night is long

Now come hold my hand
No bad vibe hearts
Hold my hand you know
This journey could be long

Yeah the seasons come in
All the nights are woven
All the nights we'll see them through
Ah, no hundred men now
Would dare cut into us
We'll go on and see it through

When the night has come in
Your eyes are running wild
Then I hear you humming
All night long

Yeah the sign I see it
Yeah the times I see it
All I need to know from you
Is all I see

Can you feel the light
The air is wild, open
Oh you see the light,
It's coming through
It's there in the distance
Always offered to me
Always coming over a hill
Yeah the seasons come in
All the nights are woven
All the nights we'll see them through
Ahh no hundred men now
Would dare cut into us
We'll go on and see it through [Repeat until fade]

    General Comment"All Night Long"


    When the night is closing
    Eyes are running wild
    Then I hear you humming
    ...All night long.

    The sign I see it
    Tell me: am I true?
    All I need from you is
    ...All I see.

    This city's paved with cold
    Playboys buying fun,
    Seems there is no hunter left
    Without his hunting gun.

    Can you feel the light?
    The air is wild open
    Oh you see the light it's coming through,
    It's there in the distance
    Always offered to me
    Always coming over a hill.

    Oh your see-saw smile
    Lasts me all night long,
    Like a siren's curl
    When the night is long.

    Now come hold my hand
    No bad vibe hearts,
    Hold my hand you know this
    Journey could be long.

    Yeah the seasons come in
    All the nights are woven
    All the nights we'll see them through,
    Oh no hundred men now
    Would dare cut into us
    We'll go on and see it through.

    (Belle... Une rose qui a joue son role
    Mon Miroir, mon clef d'or, mon cheval
    Et mon gant sont les cinq secrets de ma puissance)

    (Je voulais livrer...
    Il vous suffira de mettre ce gant a votre main droite
    Il vous transportera ou vous desirez l'etre).

    When the night has come in
    Your eyes are running wild
    Then I hear you humming over
    All night long.

    Yeah the sign I see it
    Yeah the times I see it
    All I need to know from you is all I see.

    Can you feel the light?
    The air is wide open
    Oh you see the light it's coming through,
    It's there in the distance
    Always offered to me
    Always coming over a hill.

    Yeah the seasons come in
    All the nights are woven
    All the nights we'll see them through,
    Oh no hundred men now
    Would dare cut into us
    We'll go on and see it through.

    Can you feel the light?
    The air is wide open
    Oh you see the light it's coming through,
    It's there in the distance
    Always offered to me
    Always coming over a hill...

    My InterpretationHey there. This is my first post. Peter is the best. He touches me like no other. His lyrics are truly profound on so many levels, but with this song it's the basic "together we can do anything" concept. I feel (in my opinion of course) that this song is an expression of loyalty and faith.

    The speaker is basically stating that despite tough times, together, we'll make it through. The other person in the song is down, his/her eyes running wild throughout nights that are woven and repetitive. He is saying that he hears him/her all night long, every night, and if she/he just hold his hand, together they'll make it through no matter what. The season is coming. All the nights, we'll make it through.

    On a personal note, this is a song that truly captured my heart throughout my own touch times and will always be one of my favorites. Especially the "Just For Love" version. He is magic. He draws tears, both sorrow and hope, tears of joy ultimately.

    Oh, and if you haven't seen him live, go go go! Magic!
