I Want It That Way - Lyrics

backstreet boys

Yeah

<Verse 1>
You are my fire
The one desire
Believe when I say
I want it that way

But we are two worlds apart
Can’t reach to your heart
When you say
That I want it that way

Tell me why Ain't nothin' but a heartache Tell me why Ain't nothin' but a mistake

Tell me why
I never wanna hear you say
I want it that way

<Verse 2>
Am I your fire?
Your one desire
Yes, I know it’s too late
But I want it that way

Now I can see that we've fallen apart From the way that it used to be, yeah

No matter the distance
I want you to know
That deep down inside of me

You are my fire The one desire You are (you are, you are, you are) Don't wanna hear you say

Ain’t nothin’ but a heartache
Ain’t nothin’ but a mistake (don’t wanna hear you say)
I never wanna hear you say (oh, yeah)
I want it that way

x2

'Cause I want it that way

You are my fire

the one… desire

Believe… when i say

i want it that way

Tell me why?
