[Brian: Verse 1]
You are my fire
The one desire
Believe when I say
I want it that way


[Nick: Verse 2]
But we are two worlds apart
Can't reach to your heart
When you say
That I want it that way

[Chorus]
Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a mistake
Tell me why
I never want to hear you say
I want it that way

[AJ: Verse 3]
Am I your fire
Your one desire
Yes I know it's too late
But I want it that way

[Chorus]

[Bridge: Kevin]
Now I can see that we're falling 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

[Howie: Verse 4]
You are my fire
The one desire
You are
You are, you are, you are

[Verse 5]
Don't want to hear you
Ain't nothing but a heartache
Ain't nothing but a mistake
(Don't want to hear you say)
I never want to hear you say
(Oh Yeah)
I want it that way

[Chorus][x2]
Cause I want it that way
