Adele – Set Fire To The Rain lyrics

[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

    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.

    The meaning to this song is about this girl who fell deeply in love with this guy when she was feeling unstable in her life, only to find out that the guys that she was in love with was a liar and was fake and a cheater. So the girl decides to "set fire to the rain" and gives the guys a taste of his own medicine (leaving the guy.)

    Okay this one means that you set fire to rain or water with oil. Another oil explosion happens in the gulf, but this time oil shoots out from the ocean into the sky. When the oil is in the sky a crazy sniper decides to shoot the oil and boom you have raining fire. Kids, jusy ask your science teacher about this. Your teacher is no fool and neither is adele. Gotta go get some ice cream and cry now.

    The meaning of this song is adele was in a relationship that she was giving her all to but the man she loved wasn't giving his back. And at times she wanted to leave him but when she saw him she just rain back. But then one day she had the courage to run away while she cried because she kept seeing his face so she threw every memory she had of him away. When she mention fire she literary mean it shes using it as a metaphor.
