Adele - Set Fire to the Rain

[Verse 1]
I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell, you rose to claim it,
It was dark and I was over,
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me,
My hands, they're strong, but my knees, they're far too weak,
To stand in your arms without falling to your feet,

[Pre-Chorus]
But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew,
All the things that you'd say, they were never true, never true,
And the games that you'd play, you would always win, always win
,

[Chorus]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried,
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name,

[Verse 2]
I lay with you, I just lay there
Closed my eyes, feel you here forever,
You and me together, nothing gets better,

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew,
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true,
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win,

[Chorus]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried,
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name
I set fire to the rain,
And I threw us into the flames,
Well, It felt something died,
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time.

[Bridge]
Sometimes I wake up at the door,
That heart you caught must be waiting for ya,
Even now when we're already over,
I can't help myself from looking for ya
.

[Chorus]
I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touch your face,
Well, it burned while I cried,
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name
I set fire to the rain,
And I threw us into the flames,
Well, it felt something died,
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time, oh,

Oh, no,
Let it burn, oh,
Let it burn,
Let it burn

"Set Fire to the Rain" is a song performed by english singer-songwriter Adele, released as the third single from her studio album, 21. The song talks about a relationship coming to an end. Girl meets guy, he is wonderful and she falls really quickly. He tells her all of these amazing things, but really they were all a lie and now she is left with a broken heart. He continually tries to play games with her and no matter hard she fights, she will never win. Nothing she can do will fix the relationship. As hard as she doesn’t want to let him go, she breaks it off in order to save herself for further heartbreak. The pain of breaking off a relationship with someone who means so much but is two-sided and not good to be with. The title is an allusion to James Taylor’s Fire and Rain, but Adele approaches the same themes with a thug-feminist perspective. In the US, the song hit #1, becoming her third consecutive number one from the album. She wouldn’t reach such heights again until her comeback single Hello debuted at number one with a shocking 1.12 million copies sold in one week – the largest ever recorded in the US.
