Verse:
          DmDm chord      FF chord
I let it fall, my heart,
           CC chord                    BbBb chord
And as it fell, you rose to claim it,
        DmDm chord            FF chord
It was dark and I was over,
           CC chord                     BbBb chord
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me,
    DmDm chord             FF chord              
My hands, they're strong, 
          CC chord                BbBb chord
but my knees were far too weak,
     DmDm chord           FF chord
To stand in your arms 
          CC chord               BbBb chord
without falling to your feet,
 
Pre-Chorus:
               BbBb chord                 DmDm chord
But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew,
          BbBb chord                          DmDm chord
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true,
         BbBb chord                            CC chord
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win,
 
Chorus:
           DmDm chord
But I set fire to the rain,
            CC chord
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
           BbBb chord
Well, it burned while I cried,
                                      GmGm chord          CC chord
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name,
 
Verse:
      DmDm chord       FF chord
When lay with you
          CC chord           BbBb chord 
I could stay there, close my eyes, 
          DmDm chord     FF chord
feel you here forever,
        CC chord                        BbBb chord
You and me together, nothing is better,
 
Pre-Chorus:
               BbBb chord                 DmDm chord
But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew,
          BbBb chord                          DmDm chord
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true,
         BbBb chord                            CC chord
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win,
 
Chorus:
           DmDm chord
But I set fire to the rain,
            CC chord
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
           BbBb chord
Well, it burned while I cried,
                                      GmGm chord          CC chord
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name,
       DmDm chord
I set fire to the rain,
            CC chord
And I threw us into the flames,
         BbBb chord
Well, I felt something die,
                                      GmGm chord             CC chord
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time,
 
Bridge:
          DmDm chord                FF chord
Sometimes I wake up by the door,
               CC chord                        BbBb chord
And heard you calling, must be waiting for you,
      DmDm chord                     FF chord
Even now when we're already over,
         CC chord                        BbBb chord
I can't help myself from looking for you,
 
Chorus:
           DmDm chord
But I set fire to the rain,
            CC chord
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
           BbBb chord
Well, it burned while I cried,
                                      GmGm chord          CC chord
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name,
       DmDm chord
I set fire to the rain,
            CC chord
And I threw us into the flames,
         BbBb chord
Well, I felt something die,
                                      GmGm chord             CC chord
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time,

Let it burn.

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming patterns, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
