"Daniel" as written by Elton John, Bernie Taupin and Vladimir Cort....
Daniel is traveling 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

Oh oh, 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 see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Oh oh, 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 see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Daniel is traveling 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

    General Comment"Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane..." (It's Daniel's body. He was KIA in Vietnam)

    "I can see Daniel waving goodbye. God, it looks like Daniel. Must be the clouds in my eyes." (The brother WANTS to see Daniel on the plane waving goodbye but he's dead)

    "Your eyes have died..." (Daniel is gone)

    "Daniel you're a star, in the face of the sky..."(Daniel's in Heaven)

    "They say Spain is pretty, though I've never been. Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever been..." (Daniel loved Spain. Where else would he want to be buried?)

    Any questions?
