Lyrics:
Up All Night [Version (a)]:

When you get the rhythm and words all make you cold
When you break it down and this world is all you know
Hands up, you're waving around and get yourself together
When you count the dominoes falling, it's time to go

Now I'm feeling so far away
I see the colors and all the kids going home
Night is crawling into the day
I hear my voice ringing
The summertime singing:

I just wanna stay up all night with you
Just wanna stay up all night with you
There's nothing I wouldn't rather do
Just wanna stay up all night with you

I'll keep on moving
Don't wait for nothing now
I'll keep on moving
Don't wait for nothing now
I'll keep on moving
Don't wait, don't wait for nothing now
I'll keep on moving
Don't wait for nothing now
Don't wait for nothing now

One two what're you doing?
I've been jumping through some hoops
Want to get my body loose
Want to tell you, tell you what to do
I've been running on the grass
Like an animal struggling
Looking for the diamond
I'm trying, I'm fighting
Back into the rhythm now

I just want to stay up all night
I just want to stay up all night with you
With you you

Just want to stay up all night with you
Stay up all night
Just want to stay up all night with you
There's nothing that I wouldn't rather do then stay up all night
Just want to stay up all night with you

Hands up in the air
If you don't really care
???
If you gotta climb to take it up there
Hands up in the air
Livin' out on a prayer
??
Nothing that I want but rather be there
 
The Song:

"Up All Night" is a cliche-filled song, likely on Beck's upcoming 2017 album.

Rolling Stone reports that the version we currently have, which leaked on Youtube and was purportedly on the soundtrack to the FIFA '17 video game, is an "early version" of the song. Whether this means it is different in some way from the album cut, or just that we received it early, before the album proper, is unclear. (Some version of the song was also in a watch commercial.)

The song focuses on a musician seeing jubilant crowds at a music festival, and wanting to deliver for them. There may be some autobiography here, as Beck seems to be writing about struggling to perform -- the injury struggles he went through for a few years may show up in this as well.
