Got the news today
But they said I had to stay
A little bit longer and I'd be fine
When I thought it'd all be 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 'til 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, know, know.
You don't even know

All this time moves 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 'til it's gone
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, know, know.
You don't even know, know, know.
You don't even know, no yeah

And you don't know what you got 'til it's gone.
Don't know what it's like to feel so low, yeah!
And every time you smile or laugh you glow,
You don't even know! yeah! woah!

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

    I love this song. The weird thing is that I was lisining to it before I got diagnosed with scoliosis.

    P.S. And it's not just Nick singing a song about his diabetes

    i know what nick is going through and it is hard I have type 1 diabetes and it's really hard. sometimes you just feel like u just want to kill urself and then u rethink and say to urseld "I have to be strong, not only for me but my family and friends, and If i weren't meant to live with this disease, God wouldn't have gave it to me" And u don't really no what u have till u lose it. people say they no what ur going through but they don't, they don't no how u truly feel living with diabetes every day of ur life, its very hard, and Nick has made me feel better about living with diabetes and I hope one day they find a cure because nobody really deserves to live with diabetes, but it happens and u just have to accept the fact that it is going to be pretty much the biggest part of ur life.

    This song is
    For every broken heart
    For every lost dream
    For every high and
    For every low
    For every person who has ever felt lonely
    And tonight, this song
    This song is For you

    By Nick Jonas
