Is the meaning of this sentence 'we lived in england but we don't anymore' or 'we have lived in england and we still do'?

The first one :) however, if you added a period of time after the English sentence, for example "Vi har boet i England i fem år" - "we have lived in England for five years" then it would be uncertain if we don't live there anymore or if we still live there :)
