Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye

Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much
Daniel my brother you are older than me
Your eyes have died, but you see more than I

I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
