Word order question: Is it wrong to write "ada hanya" or does it always have to be "hanya ada"?

In this sentence, you can only use "hanya ada".

In the first few Google results for "ada hanya" (those that show these words in the snippets), all are actually "yang ada hanya" (the phrase is "yang ada", not "ada hanya").

I'm sure there are legitimate "ada hanya" phrases out there, but for this sentence, it should be "hanya ada".

Kenapa "ingin" sebalik dari "mau" salah?

You can say "... yang saya inginkan".
