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, 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
,

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,

When laying with you I could stay there,
Close my eyes, feel you here forever,
You and me together, nothing gets better,

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,

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.

Sometimes I wake up by 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.

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

    Sounds like she ran from a relationship where he was trying to control her. Even though she loved him, and she could hold his heart in her hands she couldn't bow to his feet him to give him what he wanted so she made a hard choice to finally leave a man she loved and still loves. She thinks of him often and feels her heart stillbelongs to him but she had to burn the relationship to ensure it ended forever and she wouldn't be tempted to go back to him.

    There's always going to be certain people who brings out the best in you, but they also get the best of you. And even when things are at an obvious break or standstill, you won't let yourself believe it because you're just too into them to let them go. But you need to, for you are doing them a disservice keeping a being beside you who doesn't fully-without-a-doubt want to be.

    To me, I think that this song is about the agony a girl will feel when the bf is leaving her for someone else. You feel so upset inside because you still love him. You want him to come back to you. However, at the same time, you hate him for cheating on you. At this point of time, you just want to set fire to the two of you and burn each other up!
