Elton John – Daniel lyrics

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 see 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

    I was the younger brother of my Brother Daniel. I lost him @ 48 years of age. God told me I would see him pass before me. I had this song played at his funeral and the entire funeral home went into tears. Thank you so much Elton. I put a new perspective on the do you still feel the pain of the scars that the wont heal, as his wife treated him like crap. I love you Elton. See you 03-26-09 in Phoenix.

    I have always cried whenever this song is played. My brother Dan was 14 years older than me and he suffered the loss of his mother from leukemia in 1952 at 12 years old. He was a farmers son and dad didn't have time to cry and didn't allow Dan any either. The scars remained throughout his lifetime and no matter how strong he was, he was still plagued by self doubt and battled depression with emotions that were skewed because of that loss so long ago. I lost him in December of 2015 when he decided to stop his suffering and quit taking his dialysis. We made amends just days before he passed. And now I somewhat understand why he was the way he was.

    When I was a kid, I listened to the song and it always brought tears in my eyes even though I didn't understood english cause I am french. I think Elton John sings it with such emotion that it touched me even if I was a kid. This song make me think of my cousin Daniel since I can remember, now more than ever cause he died of aids 10 years ago and you know what? This song still bring tears in my eyes. Lovely song.
