The Sky is Burning

The beer in front of me that tastes as lousy as I feel,
My shirt covered in sweat, the air in the room moist and humid,
 
You did it, I'm crying over you,
You've left, you don't see it
 
The sky is burning, the angels are fleeing
We're separated by smoke and fire
I sit here and look at you
I'll wait til I burn
The sky is burning, the angels are fleeing
I'm suffocating in black clouds
My mistake was that I believed
That you would follow me into the fire
But the sky that we wanted
The sky is burning
 
I love you, I scream the words at the wall in front of me
The picture hangs there - I turn it around, I don't want you here anymore
You know I need you for your own good
Why are you leaving me here in ashes and smoke
 
The sky is burning, the angels are fleeing
And I'm suffocating in black clouds
My mistake was that I believed
That you would follow me into the fire
But the sky that we wanted
The sky is burning
 
The sky is burning, the angels are fleeing
We're separated by smoke and fire
The sky is burning, the angels are fleeing
And they drove us away
From everything that I need from you
Nothing is left at the end now
Of hope and love
The sky is burning, the angels are fleeing
And I'm suffocating in black clouds
My mistake was that I believed
That you would follow me into the fire
But the sky that we wanted
The sky is burning
 
Thanks!

I corrected the lyrics, one line wasn't correct, I corrected it:
Von alledem, was ich dich brauch, -> Von alledem, was wichtig war,

>"Der Himmel brennt" = Heaven's on fire

>"Auf dein Wohl, du weißt doch, dass ich dich brauch'."
Cheers, you know that I need you

>" Von alledem, was wichtig war,
Ist jetzt am Ende nichts geblieben,"
Of all what was important
There's nothing left after all
