All of the words are homophones with other words that do not follow the rule:
"I before E except after C, or when sounding like A as in neighbor and weigh"
We're - weir
there - their
dying - dyeing
nice - gneiss
slight - sleight
There are at least several other common words that answer this puzzle, and I have found a few more less common words also.
