“Love You for a Long Time” details falling in love in the opening refrain. “I saw your face and I knew it was a sign/And I still think about that moment all of the time,” she sings over a winsome guitar melody, while the chorus professes longterm devotion. “And in the morning when I’m waking up/I swear that you’re the first thing that I’m thinking of/I feel it in my body/Know it in my mind,” she sings. “Oh I, I’m gonna love you for a long time.”
