"Daniel " as written by and Devendra Banhart....
We once had a time
Meet me at The Castro tonight
I held a rose, you held who knows
But that’s fine

And we fell in love, we fell in love
At the Jon Reed choir
And right there and then
I swore to no end
Swore to never let you go

But love’s got a way of fading away
I never saw you again
I never saw you again

Waiting in line to see Suede play
And we had a time, I wish we could stay
And waiting in line to see Suede play

    General CommentI think this maybe a gay love song, and not that heavily coded one. References to The Castro and the John Reed Sims Choir are the real giveaway. There is also a fragile tenderness in the lyrics that gives it the feeling of something secretive, in the same way that Sufjan Stevens is very guarded about his sexuality. If this is the case, I applaud Devendra for writing such an honest song.
