Backstreet Boys — I Want It That Way lyrics

[Brian]
Yeah

You are my fire
The one desire
Believe when I say
I want it that way

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

[Nick]Tell me why
[All]Ain't nothin' but a heartache
[Nick]Tell me why
[All]Ain't nothin' but a mistake
[Nick]Tell me why
I never wanna hear you say
[All/Nick]I want it that way

[AJ]
Am I your fire
Your one desire
Yes I know it's too late
But I want it that way

[AJ]Tell me why
[All]Ain't nothin' but a heartache ([AJ] Tell me why)
[AJ]Tell me why
[All]Ain't nothin' but a mistake
[AJ]Tell me why
[Brian] I never wanna hear you say
[All/AJ] I want it that way

[Kevin]
Now I can see that we're fallen apart
From the way that it used to be, yeah
[Kevin/AJ]
No matter the distance
I want you to know
That deep down inside of me...

[Howie D]
You are my fire
The one desire
You are
[All] You are, you are, you are

[Nick]Don't wanna hear you say
[All]Ain't nothin' but a heartache
Ain't nothin' but a mistake
([Nick] Don't wanna hear you say)
[All/Brian] I never wanna hear you say
([Nick] Oh yeah)
[All/Brian] I want it that way

[Brian] Tell me why
[All]Ain't nothin' but a heartache ([Brian] Tell me why)
Tell me why
Ain't nothin but a mistake
Tell me why
I never wanna hear you say
([Nick]Don't wanna hear you say)
[All] I want it that way
([Brian]Tell me why)
[All] Ain't nothin But a heartache
Ain't nothin but a mistake
Tell me why
[Nick/Brian] I never want to hear you say
I want it that way ([Howie D] Don't wanna hear you say, yeah)
[AJ] Cause I want it that way
