Verse:
          Dm      F
I let it fall, my heart,
           C                    Bb
And as it fell, you rose to claim it,
        Dm            F
It was dark and I was over,
           C                     Bb
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me,
    Dm             F              
My hands, they're strong, 
          C                Bb
but my knees were far too weak,
     Dm           F
To stand in your arms 
          C               Bb
without falling to your feet,

Pre-Chorus:
               Bb                 Dm
But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew,
          Bb                          Dm
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true,
         Bb                            C
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win,

Chorus:
           Dm
But I set fire to the rain,
            C
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
           Bb
Well, it burned while I cried,
                                      Gm          C
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name,

Verse:
      Dm       F
When lay with you
          C           Bb 
I could stay there, close my eyes, 
          Dm     F
feel you here forever,
        C                        Bb
You and me together, nothing is better,

Pre-Chorus:
               Bb                 Dm
But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew,
          Bb                          Dm
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true,
         Bb                            C
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win,

Chorus:
           Dm
But I set fire to the rain,
            C
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
           Bb
Well, it burned while I cried,
                                      Gm          C
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name,
       Dm
I set fire to the rain,
            C
And I threw us into the flames,
         Bb
Well, I felt something die,
                                      Gm             C
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time,

Bridge:
          Dm                F
Sometimes I wake up by the door,
               C                        Bb
And heard you calling, must be waiting for you,
      Dm                     F
Even now when we're already over,
         C                        Bb
I can't help myself from looking for you,

Chorus:
           Dm
But I set fire to the rain,
            C
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
           Bb
Well, it burned while I cried,
                                      Gm          C
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name,
       Dm
I set fire to the rain,
            C
And I threw us into the flames,
         Bb
Well, I felt something die,
                                      Gm             C
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time,

Outro - same chords as Chorus -:
Oh, no,
Let it burn, oh,
Let it burn,
Let it burn.

  1. The uke girl

    This is a great song! For the chorus I do ddu. And for the rest I just down strum! It’s amazing! I recommend -5 for beginners and intermediate uke players who aren’t that progressional yet. The original 0 is perfect for all other levels!

  2. If you have trouble the the intro finger picking pattern you can pluck the G and the A string at the same time and then the C string then the E string and then the C string once more and you have an easier finger picking pattern that is easy to do and sounds almost the same as the original (great for beginners ) :)

  3. -5 is great for beginners

  4. Ukuawsome

    love this song it’s perfect for my vocal range !!!!
