Intro: F#m D A  x2

Vers:

You are[F#m], my [D]fire[A],
The [F#m]one, [D]desire[A],
Believe[F#m], when[D] I [A]say,
[F#m]I want it [E]that [A]way

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


Chorus:

Tell me [D]why, (Ain't nothin' but a [E]heart[F#m]ache)
Tell me [D]why, (Ain't nothin' but a [E]mist[F#m]ake)
Tell me [D]why, I never wanna [E]hear you [A]say
[F#m]I want it [E]that [A]way


Vers:

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


Chorus:

Tell me why, (Ain't nothin' but a heartache)
Tell me why, (Ain't nothin' but a mistake)
Tell me why, I never wanna hear you say
[F#m]I want it [C#]that way


Bridge:

[F#m]Now I can see that we're [A]fallin' apart,
From the [D]way that it used to [E]be, (Yeah)
No [F#m]matter the distance,
I [A]want you to know,
That [D]deep down inside of [E]me...


Vers (No Chords):

You are, my fire,
The one, desire,
You are, You are, You are, You are...


Chorus:

(Don't wanna hear you say!)

[E]Ain't nothin' but a [F#]heart[G#m]ache,
[E]Ain't nothin' but a [F#]mist[G#m]ake,
[E]I never wanna [F#]hear you [B]say,
[G#m]I want it [F#]that [B]way

Tell me [E]why, (Ain't nothin' but a [F#]heart[G#m]ache)
Tell me [E]why, (Ain't nothin' but a [F#]mist[G#m]ake)
Tell me [E]why, I never wanna [F#]hear you [B]say
[G#m]I want it [F#]that [B]way

Tell me [E]why, Ain't nothin' but a [F#]heart[G#m]ache,
[E]Ain't nothin' but a [F#]mist[G#m]ake,
Tell me [E]why, I never wanna [F#]hear you [B]say,

(Don't wanna hear you say it)

[G#m]I want it [F#]that [B]way
I want it that way

well, this sounds even more reasonable than the other 3 versions. the F#m chord has a very good effect instead of the A that others were using.

thx

oooh and about this part:
[F#m]Now I can see that we're [A]fallin' apart,
From the [D]way that it used to [E]be, (Yeah)
No [F#m]matter the distance,
I [A]want you to know,
That [D]deep down inside of [E]me...

it would sound fuller if you added A F#m between the D and E, like this:

[F#m]Now I can see that we're [A]fallin' apart,
From the [D]way that it [F#m]used to [E]be, (Yeah)
No [F#m]matter the distance,
I [A]want you to know,
That [D]deep down [F#m]inside of [E]me...

or you could use the A chord. it's just a beginner's Hunch :P

see yaz
