"Set Fire to the Rain" as written by Adele Laurie Blue Adkins and Fraser Lance Thorneycroft Smith....
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 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 I lay 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 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 you
Even now when we're 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
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

Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn

    Lyric CorrectionI let it fall, my heart,
    And as it fell, you rose 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.
    Stand in your arms without falling into 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
    Let it burn 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 is 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
    Let it burn 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
    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 that 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, 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

    Let it burn
