Beyonce “All Night” Lyrics

PART 11: Redemption Spoken Word

Take one pint of water, add a half pound of sugar, the juice of eight lemons…
the zest of half lemon.
Pour the water from one jug, then into the other, several times.
Strain through a clean napkin.
Grandmother, the alchemist.
You spun gold out of this hard life.
Conjured beauty from the things left behind.
Found healing where it did not live.
Discovered the antidote in your own kitchen.
Broke the curse with your own two hands.
You passed these instructions down to your daughter.
Who then passed it down to her daughter.

GRANDMOTHER (HATTIE): I’ve had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.

My grandma said, nothing real can be threatened.
True love brought salvation back into me.
With every tear came redemption.
And my torturer became my remedy.
(I love…)
So we’re gonna heal, we’re gonna start again. You’ve brought the orchestra.
Synchronized swimmers, you are the magician. Pull me back together again the way you cut me in half.
Make the woman in doubt disappear.
Pull the sorrow from between my legs like silk, knot after knot after knot.
The audience applauds…
…but we can’t hear them.

“All Night” Lyrics

Found the truth beneath your lies
And true love never has to hide
True love never has to hide
I’ll trade your broken wings for mine
Trade your broken wings for mine
I’ve seen your scars and kissed your crime
Seen your scars and kissed your crime

So many people that I know, they’re just tryna touch ya
Kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you
Give you some time to prove that I can trust you again
I’m gonna kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you

All night long
Sweet love all night long
Sweet love all night long
Sweet love all night long
All I wanna, ain’t no other
We together, I remember
Sweet love all night long

Our love was stronger than your pride
Beyond your darkness, I’m your light
If you get deep, you touch my mind
If you get deep, you touch my mind
Baptize your tears and dry your eyes
Baptize your tears and dry your eyes

So many people that I know, they’re just tryna touch ya
Kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you
Give you some time to prove that I can trust you again
I’m gonna kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you

All night long
Sweet love all night long
Sweet love all night long
Sweet love all night long
All I wanna, ain’t no other
We together, I remember
Sweet love all night long

They say true love’s the greatest weapon
To win the war caused by pain, pain
But every diamond has imperfections
But my love’s too pure to watch it chip away
Oh nothing real can be threatened
True love breathes salvation back into me
With every tear came redemption
And my torturer became my remedy

So many people that I know, they’re just tryna touch ya
Kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you
Give you some time to prove that I can trust you again
I’m gonna kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you

All night long
Sweet love all night long
Sweet love all night long
Sweet love all night long
All I wanna, ain’t no other
We together, I remember
Sweet love all night long

How I missed you, my love

Beyoncé has shared a music video for “All Night,” a track from her 2016 album, Lemonade. Watch it above, courtesy of the singer’s YouTube.

The music video, which is taken directly from the visual album, starts with a 3-minute spoken intro before the song. It features beautiful scenic imagery and home videos of her family, including Jay Z and Blue Ivy as well as footage from the 90th birthday celebration of Hattie White, Jay Z’s grandmother, and her now famous speech which concluded triumphantly:

I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.

Produced by Diplo, the song samples the horn part from OutKast’s Aquemini classic cut “SpottieOttieDopaliscious.” On the album, it serves as the feel-good emotional climax in a story of love, infidelity, and ultimately family togetherness — fitting the soothing backing music.

Lemonade is currently available on Amazon, iTunes, and Tidal. Other music videos the singer has shared from the LP are “Sorry” and “Formation.”
