The song is all about living life and partying to the fullest. "But you know I wish that this night would never be over," sings Lambert. "There's plenty of time to sleep when we die. So let's just stay awake until we grow older. If I had my way we'd never close our eyes, our eyes, never!" Lambert tweeted regarding the song's meaning, "to me, NCOE is about all of US. A community. A movement."
