Backstreet Boys - I Want It That Way chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey everyone I'm not sure if this is completely like the original but of the 
versions i've tried on this site i think this sounds the best! I realize it is not 
in the original key but that can be adjusted by starting with capo 4 or simply 
transpose up 3 half steps. The key this is in works very well for female vocals, 
especially soprano. 

Since the key change can have some tricky chords, I did rate this as an 
intermediate level tab. However, you can get around this by moving the capo up a 
fret in the rest between "you are, you are, you are, you are..." and "don't wanna 
hear you say" and continue with the previous chords. 

Hope you guys like it please rate and comment!!

CAPO 1

    C#m     A   E        
You are, my fi-re,
    C#m    A  E
The one, desi-re,
   C#m     A    E
Believe, when I say,
C#m  A       B   E
I   want it that way
 
    C#m     A    E 
But we, are two worlds...
    C#m          A    E
...apart, Can't reach to...
        C#m         A   E
...your heart, when you say,
     C#m  A       B   E
That I   want it that way


Chorus:
         A                         B   C#m
Tell me why, (Ain't nothin' but a heartache)
         A                         B C#m
Tell me why, (Ain't nothin' but a mistake)
         A                  B        E
Tell me why, I never wanna hear you say
C#m  A       B    E
I   want it that way


   C#m      A  E    
Am I, your fi-re,
     C#m     A  E
Your one, desi-re,
      C#m         A   E
Yes I know, it's too late,
    C#m  A       B   E
But I   want it that way


Chorus:

        A                         B   C#m
Tell me why, (Ain't nothin' but a heartache)
         A                         B C#m
Tell me why, (Ain't nothin' but a mistake)
         A                  B        E
Tell me why, I never wanna hear you say
C#m         G#
I  want it that way


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


(No Chords):

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

(Don't wanna hear you say!)
B                      C#  D#m
  Ain't nothin' but a heartache,
B                      C# D#m
  Ain't nothin' but a mistake,
B                C#       F#
  I never wanna hear you say,
D#m  B       C#   F#
I   want it that way
