Set Fire to the Rain

I didn’t write this, but Adele’s music and lyrics (with this song in particular) have become an anthem for me as of late in regards to the story of my past relationship and the recovery after its end.

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 were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there’s a side to you that I never knew,
All the things you’d say, they were never true,
And the games you play, you would always win,

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cry
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name,

When laying with you
I could stay there, close my eyes
Feel you here, forever
You and me together, nothing is better

‘Cause there’s a side to you that I never knew,
All the things you’d say, they were never true,
And the games you’d play, you would always win,

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cried
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name,

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where I felt somethin’ die, ’cause I knew that
That was the last time, the last time

Sometimes I wake up by the door
Now that you’ve gone, must be waiting for you
Even now when it’s already over
I can’t help myself from looking for you

I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cried
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name,

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where I felt somethin’ die
‘Cause I knew that that was the last time

Oh, no
Let it burn
