"Little by Little" was the Lithuanian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, performed in English by Laura & The Lovers.

The song, which was written by two of Sweden's most experienced songwriters Bobby Ljunggren and William Butt, is an up-tempo number, with Laura singing to a lover about how she feels now that the two of them are starting to connect in their relationship.

As Lithuania had not qualified for the final at the 2004 Contest, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed second (following Austria's Global Kryner with "Y así" and preceding Portugal's 2B with "Amar"). At the close of voting, it had received 17 points, placing 25th (last) in a field of 25 - thus requiring Lithuania to qualify through the semi-final at their next Contest appearance. "Little by Little" remained the highest scoring entry to have finished last in a Eurovision Song Contest semi-final until 2012 Contest when Slovak entry "Don't Close Your Eyes" performed by Max Jason Mai finished last in field of 18 countries scoring with 22 points.

It was succeeded as Lithuanian representative at the 2006 contest by LT United with "We Are the Winners".
