  • Lyrics
  • This song about a former lover is from Sex & Cigarettes, Toni Braxton's first album with Def Jam. "You know I'm stuck on love," she told Billboard. "'Long As I Live' talks about never getting over someone getting over you. After I wrote this song, I heard Adele's 'Hello' When you think about love and that person is over you, it's like you're breaking up all over again."
