"A Little Bit" as written by and David/morales Siegel....
I'm not the kind of girl to sit out on sidelines
The kind of girl who doesn't say it straight from her mind
You're gonna know all that I'm feeling on the inside
I ain't into games, I don't want to waste
Any time and all the energy we could spend
Being together boy forever you're my best friend
Got a little problem that I can't mend
You been taking me for granted you
I don't want to walk away from what we have, and you know it
I'm not telling you all of this to make you mad
It's not about who's right or wrong
It's not about who's weak or strong
It's about what I need to make this last

A little more time, a little less wait
A little more heart, a little less break
Simple and true, what they say
A little bit goes a long way
A little less talk, a little more do
A little more me, a little less you
Baby at the end of the day
A little bit goes a long way

I need your heart
I need your love

Don't want to end up in a tricky situation
So I'm giving you my every indication
We can work it out together stop the tension
Try to understand, baby where I stand
I love you and I'm trying to be gentle
So let me break it down for you and make it simple
I gave my heart and soul to you now it's essential
That you show a little love for me

I don't want to walk away or let you go, and you know it
I'm not telling you all of this to make you sad
It's not about the tears we cry
It's about how hard we try
To give a little more and see the other side

A little more time, a little less wait
A little more heart, a little less break
Simple and true, what they say
A little bit goes a long way
A little less talk, a little more do
A little more me, a little less you
Baby at the end of the day
A little bit goes a long way

And it hurts me, 'cause I care and I'm telling you why
I'm unhappy so if you love me
A little bit is not that much to ask to make things right
Oh yeah, oh yeah, a little bit goes a long, long way

A little more time, a little less wait
A little more heart, a little less break
Simple and true, what they say
A little bit goes a long way
A little less talk, a little more do
A little more me, a little less you
Baby at the end of the day
A little bit goes a long way [Repeat x2]

    General CommentI doubt I would do the same thing if I was in the same situation as Jessica. However, who knows.. maybe if I really did think the relationship would actually last with a little more effort.

    General CommentI love this song! It is so catchy and her voice is so powerful. This song is about a woman who is feeling unappreciated "You've been taking me for granted, you." She wants the man she is in a relationship with to step up and take things more serious. She wants his love and his devotion, but he probably isn't FULLY loving her the way she deserves to be loved. The solution to this issue is for him to just consistently show that he really cares for her by doing small things. For example, taking her out to dinner more, getting her gifts, giving her sicere compliments, showing respect when she has something to say ("A little less talk, a little more do.") By this she means instead of him always being the one to talk he should actually take the action of listening sometimes, AND also take action doing these small simple things that will pay off. "A Little Bit" of these types of things each and everyday is all she is asking of him. They are small reminders of why they fell in love in the first place. If he can't do these things, then there relationship can't be saved. SO, A LITTLE BIT GOES A LONG WAY......
