She walks away
The colors fade to grey
Every precious moments now a waste
She hits the gas
Hoping it would pass
The red light starts to flash
Its time to wait

And the black keys
never looked so beautiful
And a perfect rainbow
never seemed so dull
And the lights out
never had this brighter glow
And the black keys
are showing me a world I never knew, no
world I never knew

Got the news today
Doctor 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 dont know what you got
'Till its gone
And you dont know what its like
to feel so low
And every time you smile, you laugh, you glow
You dont even know, no, no
You dont even know

(Spoken)
In coming up of a new year,
I did some thinking about how
I would approach this year.
And I had a couple of thoughts,
I want to share with you tonight.
First is this:
New Year, New Beginnings
And the second:
2010 the year of NO Fear
You know, so often
We think we have each step figured out
And when one thing doesnt go our way
We begin to question,
We being to fear of what our
next step would be
I had one of those moments
about 4 and a half years ago
When I got diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes
And although, I feel like I've shared
my story enough,
there's a moment in particular
I wanna share with you tonight.
A moment that I dont talk about
very often.
Usually, you hear me say positive things:
that I've moved on,
I pressed on,
I didnt let it slow me down.
But I never talk about the moment
when I fear what the future was.
When I asked the question,
"Am I gonna die?"
My doctor looked back at me and said,
"Nope. You're gonna be alright."
And then from that point on,
I made the commitment that I wouldnt let it slow me down
And so when that moment comes for you
In your own circumstance,
In your own life,
Promise me one thing:
Dont you ever, EVER let it slow you down
Because I believe in you
And I wanna thank all of you for believing in me
Even when I had trouble believing in myself
So for that I say,
Thank you.
Now, would you sing this out with me tonight?

(sung)
But you dont know what you got
'till its gone, louder!
And you dont know what its like to feel so low
Every time you smile, you laugh, you glow
You dont even know, no, no
You dont even 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 :)
