Set Fire To The Rain by Adele

Intro: 4/4       
          |   Dm   |    F    |    C    |   Gm   | 

             Dm        F                 C                Gm
1. I let it fall, my heart___ And as it fell you rose to claim it
           Dm            F                     C
   It was dark and I was o-ver___ Un-til you kissed my lips and you saved me

       Dm              F                C                 Gm
2. My hands, they're strong___ But my knees were far too weak
       Dm            F                C
   To stand in your arms___ With-out fal-ling to your feet

                       Bb                Gm
Bridge: But there's a side to you that I ne-ver knew, ne-ver knew
                  Dm
        All the things you'd say, they were ne-ver true, ne-ver true
                 Bb                          C
        And the games you'd play, you would  al-ways win, al-ways win

                   Dm                             C  
Chorus: But I set fire to the rain___ Watched it pour as I touched your face
                   Gm
        Well, it burned while I cried___ 'Cause I heard it  
                            Dm           C
        Screaming out your name___ Your name

          Dm        F              C           Gm
3. When I lay with you___ I could stay there, close my eyes
             Dm      F                C
   Feel you here for-e-ver___ You and me to-ge-ther, noth-ing gets bet-ter

                         Bb                Gm
Bridge:'Cause there's a side to you that I ne-ver knew, ne-ver knew
                  Dm
        All the things you'd say, they were ne-ver true, ne-ver true
                 Bb                         C      
        And the games you'd play, you would al-ways win, al-ways win

                   Dm                             C  
Chorus: But I set fire to the rain___ Watched it pour as I touched your face
                   Gm
        Well, it burned while I cried___ 'Cause I heard it  
                            Dm           C
        Screaming out your name___ Your name

               Dm                             C
Chorus: I set fire to the rain___ And I threw us in-to the flames
                  Gm
        Well, it felt some-thing died 'cause I knew that that was
                  Bb               C
        The last time___ The last time

                   Bb                F
Bridge: Some-times I wake up by the door
                         Am                     C
        That heart you caught must be wait-ing for ya'-a
              Bb                       F
        E-ven now when we're al-rea-dy o-ver
                 Am                         C
        I can't help my-self from look-ing for ya'-a 

                   Dm                             C  
Chorus: But I set fire to the rain___ Watched it pour as I touched your face
                   Gm
        Well, it burned while I cried___ 'Cause I heard it  
                            Dm           C
        Screaming out your name___ Your name

               Dm                             C
Chorus: I set fire to the rain___ And I threw us in-to the flames

Notes

  • Degree of Difficulty: Fairly Easy, although you will need to know some barre chords.
  • Song Key: Dm (1 flat - B♭)
  • 4/4 Time: 4 crotchet/quarter-note beats per bar. Each bar can be counted as | 1 2 3 4 |or | 1& 2& 3& 4& |...
  • You can replace the F chord with a Fmaj7 chord... see what you think. There are several options:
    Fmaj7: xx3210 / 103210 / 102210 / xx3555
  • Standard chord progression for Dm: Dm - Edim - F - Gm - Am - B♭ - C
    You can see that most of the chords for a standard Dm progression were used for this song. Remember that Dm is the relative minor of F Major which we know has a key signature of 1 flat - B♭.
  • Usually a song finishes on the key chord of the song which would be Dm in this instance. Adele finishes on a C major chord which leaves you hanging, but in this instance it works beautifully.
  • Tip of the day: If it sounds good, use it!
  • Theory is a great tool, but don't let it stifle your creativity. Learn to rely on your ears as much as you rely on your theory.

Set Fire To The Rain Lyrics

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 were 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 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 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 Oh...

Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn...
