I remember a thread on here a few weeks ago about Elton John.

I finanlly found out what Daniel is about. EJ played it at this concert at Ceasar's Palace, that happened to be on TV and he explained it. When he first got the lyrics from Bernie he thought it was too long so he crossed out the last stanza, that was where the song was explained.

Its about a guy, maybe an older brother, who was either a pilot or flew in bombers, was badly wounded, blinded, and then died.



Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much

Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
Your eyes have died but you seen more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
