這首歌聽起來溫馨,但背後的意義卻令人揪心。Daniel是個從越南回來的士兵,帶著身上的傷,回到家鄉,被鄉民們唾棄和嘲笑,無法待在家鄉的Daniel只好再次遠行,他心中的苦,說不出,哭不了,也找不到出口。離開這個傷心地,才是唯一能使他獲得平靜的路。

Daniel
原唱者:Elton John
發行年:1973

Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane
(丹尼爾今晚要坐上飛機)

I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
(我看到機尾的紅色燈光,朝著西班牙的方向飛去)
(註:這裡會使用「Spain」,只是為了與上一句的plane押韻)
