Want To Live

I haven’t lived here in a long time.

I *haven’t* lived here in a long time.
I haven’t lived here in a *long time*. 
I haven’t lived *here* in a long time.
I haven’t *lived* here in a long time.
*I* haven’t lived here in a long time.
*I haven’t lived here in a long time.*

I want to live where I am for a long time.

I want to *live* where I am for a long time.
I *want* to live where I am for a long time.
I want to live *where I am* for a long time.
I want to live where I am for a *long time*.
*I want to live* where I am for a long time.
*I want to live where I am for a long time.*

I haven’t lived for a long time,
but I’ve wanted to
want to live
where I am
for a long time.
