"I Want It That Way(backstreet boys cover)" as written by Andreas Michael Carlsson and Martin Karl Sandberg....
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,
I want it that way...

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!

Am I your fire?
Your one desire?
Yes I know, it's too late,
But I want it that way!

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!

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...

You are my fire,
The one desire,
You are (you are, you are)

Don't want to hear you!
(Say!) 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!
I want it that way...

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,
'Cause I want it that way!

    General CommentHaha this song is great. I love how it starts off all backstreet boy-ish but then the guitars come in and the song's mood suddenly changes. Funny stuff.
