Anthem

Album: Tangled Up (2015)
  • This is the beat that puts the fire in your feet
    Gives you the license to be a little crazy
    This is the groove that gives you swagger to move
    And gets you talkin' real smooth to a lady
    This is the hook that gets you givin' the look
    That gets you gettin' the number in your pocket
    This is the part where the bass gonna start
    And even last call can't stop it

    All night anthem
    Ain't never gonna leave your head
    All night anthem
    Ain't nobody goin' to bed
    'Til the drinks go down
    And the sun comes up
    The rhythm's gonna hold you for ransom
    It's an all night anthem

    And this is the verse where you don't know the words
    And you don't give a damn 'cause it feels good
    Put a whole generation in heavy rotation
    Play it over and over and it's still good
    This is the sound of a big little town
    Just throwin' it down where the floor is
    You startin' to feel the momentum build
    So bring it on back to the chorus

    All night Anthem
    Ain't never gonna leave your head
    All night anthem
    Ain't nobody goin' to bed
    'Til the drinks go down
    And the sun comes up
    The rhythm's gonna hold you for ransom
    It's an all night anthem

    This ain't about who's got money
    And ain't about what kind of car you drive
    This ain't about where you came from
    And ain't how you're gettin' home tonight
    This ain't about who's got money
    And ain't about what kind of car you drive
    This ain't about where you came from
    It's about livin' while you're alive

    All night anthem
    Ain't never gonna leave your head
    All night anthem
    Ain't nobody goin' to bed
    'Til the drinks go down
    And the sun comes up
    The rhythm's gonna hold you for ransom
    It's an all night anthem

    It's an all night anthem yeah, yeah
    It's an all night anthem, baby
    All night anthem
