This is how you play it properly using the correct chords without a capo. Lower down on the page you'll see 
how to play it with the capo at 3rd and 5th fret. This can be useful if you want to make it a bit higher 
or lower depending on the singers voice and want to adjust the chords and variations easily.

[Intro]
Dm F C Gm

[Verse]
Dm F C Gm
Dm F C 

         Dm       F
I let it fall, my heart,
          C                    Gm
And as it fell you rose to claim it
       Dm             F
It was dark and I was over
          C
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

   Dm              F 
My hands, they're strong
       C                    Gm
But my knees were far too weak,
    Dm           F
To stand in your arms
         C
Without falling to your feet

[Refrain]
Bb Gm7
Dm Bb C

               Bb
But there's a side to you
        Gm7
That I never knew, never knew.
          Dm 
All the things you'd say
           Dm
They were never true, never true,
        Bb 
And the games you play
          C
You would always win, always win

[Chorus]
(short version with just one line of "fire to the rain")
Dm C Gm7
Dm C 

          Dm
But I set fire to the rain,
           C
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
          Gm7 
Well, it burned while I cried
                                     Dm          C
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!


[Verse]
Dm F C Gm
Dm F C

       Dm       F
When I lay with you
          C
I could stay there
Gm
Close my eyes
          Dm     F
Feel you here forever
         C
You and me together
              C
Nothing gets better

[Refrain]
Bb Gm7
Dm Bb C

                  Bb
'Cause there's a side to you
        Gm7
That I never knew, never knew.
          Dm 
All the things you'd say
           Dm
They were never true, never true,
        Bb 
And the games you play
          C
You would always win, always win


[Chorus]
(Longer version with a small chord difference in the second part)
Dm C Gm7
Dm C 
Dm C Gm7
Bb C

          Dm
But I set fire to the rain,
           C
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
          Gm7
Well, it burned while I cried
                                     Dm          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
         Gm7
When it fell, something died
                                     Bb              C
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!

[Bridge]
Bb F/A Am C

          Bb                F/A
Sometimes I wake up by the door,
                Am                     C
That heart you caught must be waiting for you
      Bb                    F/A
Even now when we're already over
         Am                       C
I can't help myself from looking for you.

[Chorus]

Bb C

          Dm
But I set fire to the rain,
           C
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
          Gm7
Well, it burned while I cried
                                     Dm          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
         Gm7
When it fell, something died
                                     Bb              C
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time! ...

This is accurate. And as far as I can see the only version that deserves 5 stars. Good job!
