"A Little Bit Longer" as written by and Jonas....
Got the news today
Doctors 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
And every time you smile, you laugh, you glow
You don't even know, know, know
You don't even know

All this time goes by
Still no reason why
A little bit longer and I'll be fine

Waiting 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, you laugh, you glow
You don't even know, know, know
You don't even know, know, know
You don't even know, know, know

Yeah!

But you don't what you got till it's gone,
And you don't know what it's like to feel so low, yeah
And every time you smile, you laugh, you glow
You don't even know! yeah, oh, yeah, ohhh, yeah, yeah
You don't even know! know, know!

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

    General CommentNick Jonas wrote this about his having diabetes; I think it's so inspirational and it's probably my favourite song of theirs ever!

    General Commentactually i read in an article that this song is about one of the brothers insecurities with the size of his penis. He just wants it to be "a little bit longer, and I'll be fine"

    The song is based around his time in the hospital while the doctors try to figure out the best way to make his penis "a little bit longer"

    great song

    I hope it's on their third album (although I've heard rumours that it won't be)

    General CommentWhat it's called right now is correct. Someone that met JB asked them about the title of the song, and they said that it is "A Little Bit Longer."

    General CommentSorry, but this isn't about his diabetes.
    HOLD ON, so how many songs would he honestly need?

    I was told by a reliable source [:)]
    that its another song for JB's late Grandmother,
    in her point of view.
