Adele has written the song “Set Fire to The Rain” with two opposite feelings; one is love while the other is hatred. These two contrast feelings appear and disappear alternatively. On one hand, the woman displays her immense love for the man while at other point she expresses her hatred towards the man. The woman has just ended her relationship with a man. That is why she is very sad and her heart aches. She is suffering from disappointment. But then after some day, a new man enters her life. He is a real gentleman who loves her very much as well as cares for her. Gradually the woman is becoming used to this man and cannot live without him. When the man goes away, she just burst into tears while if he is close to her the woman remains happy. In fact, the woman not only loves him, the man has become the need of the woman. But soon the woman starts to realize that she does not know anything about that man. She can now understand that this man is trying to hide something from her which generates the hatred within the woman towards the man and as the man does not change himself, the woman just break up with him. Though she is not with him anymore, she feels love as well as hatred whenever she remembers him. Like most of Adele’s songs it’s about love and heartbreak.
Set Fire to the Rain Chorus:
"But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried"
