Nick Jonas Sings Out About Diabetes

5821

The Jonas Brothers have a new album coming out August 12 on Hollywood Records. The album Little Bit Longer takes its title from a song Nick Jonas wrote about his struggle with diabetes. Nick told Entertainment Weekly that he wrote the song on a day when he was feeling down and out. He went into an empty hotel ballroom and walked out with a song. Talk about making lemonade when life gives you lemons! Thanks, Nick, we can’t wait to hear your new tunes.

Here are the lyrics to “A Little Bit Longer” as posted on the Jonas Brothers’ diabetes website, Change for the Children.

Got the news today
But they said I had to stay
A little bit longer
And I’ll be fine
When I thought it’d all been done
When I thought it’d all been said
A little bit longer
And I’ll be fine

But you don’t know what you got
‘Till it’s gone
And you don’t know what it’s like
To feel so low
Everytime you smile or laugh you glow
You don’t even know
No no
You don’t even know

All this time goes by
Still no reason why
A little bit longer
And I’ll be fine
Waitin’ on a cure
But none of them are sure
A little bit longer
And I’ll be fine

But you don’t know what you got
‘Till it’s gone
And you don’t know what it’s like
To feel so low
And every time you smile or laugh you glow
You don’t even know
No no
You don’t even know
No no

Two, three, four!

Yeah!
And you don’t know what you got
‘Till it’s gone
And you don’t know what it’s like
To feel so low
And everytime you smile or laugh you glow
You don’t even know
No

So I wait ’till kingdom come
All the highs and lows are gone
A little bit longer
And I’ll be fine
I’ll be fine
