Italian term or phrase: "stare sull'alto-là"

J'ai cette phrase dans un texte assez général, sur des personnes dormant dans la rue. Voici la phrase : "Durante la notte dormi poco, devi stare sempre sull’alto-là".

Je pensais traduire par "rester sur le qui-vive", qu'en pensez-vous ?
Merci d'avance pour vos réponses !
