I Want It That Way Lyrics


You are my fire
The one desire
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 nothing but a heartache
Tell me why

    It's saying that she is their only one and they are asking if they are hers. They are saying that she is their only one and they want it that way, but they don't wanna hear her say that they want them to be "two worlds apart" or that they don't want eachother to be together.
