LyricsEdit

AJ:

Yeah
Brian: 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

Tell me why

BSB:

Ain't nothin' but a heartache

Nick:
Tell me why

BSB:
Ain't nothin' but a mistake
Tell me why

Nick:
I never wanna hear you say

BSB:
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
Tell me why

BSB:
Ain't nothin' but a heartache

AJ:
Tell me why

BSB:
Ain't nothin' but a mistake
Tell me why

Brian:
I never wanna hear you say

Brian with BSB:
I want it that way


Kevin: Now I can see that we're falling apart
From the way that it used to be, yeah

Kevin with AJ:
No matter the distance
I want you to know
That deep down inside of me...


Howie: You are my fire
The one desire
You are

Howie with BSB:
You are, you are, you are

Nick:
Don't wanna hear you say!

BSB:
Ain't nothin' but a heartache
Ain't nothin' but a mistake
(Nick: Don't wanna hear you say)
I never wanna hear you say
(Nick: Oh Yeah)
I want it that way


Brian: Tell me why

BSB:
Ain't nothin' but a heartache

Ain't nothin but a mistake
Tell me why
I never wanna hear you say
(Nick: Don't wanna hear you say)
I want it that way

Brian:
Tell me why

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

I want it that way

AJ:
'Cause I want it that way
