Sepanjang Malam interestingly

Thinking aloud when I am tired:

Panjang = long

lama = long in terms of time

But why do we say:

sepanjang malam = all through the night

Notice that malam is made a passage of time hence the physical aspect is the derived understanding.

In other words, one night becomes a passage of time with a profile of one travelling the passage….all through the night

Time becomes space in this instance.
