    I will always love you till I breathe or I will always love you till I will breathe

    Hi teachers,

    "I will always love you till I breathe." or "I will always love you till I will breathe." Which one is correct and natural? I am pretty confused about using "will" in two phrases of a sentence. Before this I had also raised a question regarding this case.

    Thanks.

    Neither works. They mean that your love will stop when you you start breathing. This clearly make no sense.

    Oh no! I didn't mean that. I am sorry. Here the one meant "I will always love you till I stop breathing." "I will always love you till I will stop breathing." Which of the two is okay or natural? My point is "will". I think you have got my problem.

    It's incorrect with the second "will".

    The first is OK. The second is not.

    You could also use till I breathe my last.
