Explanation:
Your first sentence is in French, and at least part of at least one word is missing. There's no word "I" in French; from the context, I'd guess that the intended word was probably "ici" ("here"). Secondly, the word "longtemps" means "for a long time." (The verbal phrase "to long for (someone or something)" would be, in French, "avoir envie de...," "mourir d'envie de..." or "attendre impatiemment...")

In full, the equivalent English would be "[Here,] for a long time, for kisses, romantic words [or "sweet nothings"], whispers in the dark [or "night"]..." -- You get the idea.

The Spanish is quite straightforward: "You're sweet to me. You're sweet, in general. Are you always so sweet?" (Note also that the Spanish uses the more formal third-person form "usted" ("you"), rather than the more casual and/or intimate "tú.") -- Hope this helps!
