She stood there, alone in the ballroom. This was supposed to be her night. But her best friend had danced off with her crush. Her mother and father had scolded her for something she, to this day, cannot remember. She stood there, alone and upset. Nothing ever went well for her. She was thinking that it was time to give it all up.

I let it fall, my heart

And as it fell, you rose to claim it

She had never really noticed the steward before. Why would she? But that night, he approached her, held out his hand. The musicians were long gone. But he looked her in the eye. "May I have this dance?"

It was dark and I was over

Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

It was a wonderful evening.

She was so in love. Her father would disapprove. Her mother would faint. But she didn't care. She loved him.

My hands, they're strong

But my knees were far too weak

To stand in your arms

Without falling to your feet

But there was something there. Something she didn't see.

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

Let it burn while I cried

'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

It didn't take long for them to run. Run away from the disapproving eyes. The stares. Into their own home. Disowned by their old world. Together forever.

When laying with you

I could stay there, close my eyes

Feel you here, forever

You and me together, nothing is better

It was there, she slowly began to realize...

'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

She was hurt. Betrayed. Angry. She thought it had been real. She thought they were wonderful together. But she had been blind and stupid. He was a monster.

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

The rain came down with flames in her fury. Their house—their life together—she was burning it down. She walked through the fire, listening to the harmony of its hunger for life and his screams of terror and pain. He called her name. She stared at his form burning in the flames. She turned her back. Walked away; leaving him to the fire. She never turned back.

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

Today, there is something missing. A hole she cannot fill. That hole gives her strength. She will never fall for monsters like him again. No matter how much she wants to. No matter how much she misses him.

Sometimes I wake up by the door

Now that you've gone, must be waiting for you

Even now when it's already over

I can't help myself from looking for you

She will never heal.

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

But she doesn't care.

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, oh

Oh, no

Let it burn, oh

Let it burn

Let it burn
