Elton John and Bernie wrote that song in the 70's named "Daniel". Daniel is about a Vietnam vet who was blinded in the war, and is commended for being a Hero, so is sent home. His younger brother is the one supposedly singing about his heroic brother. He is called a hero and his brother wants him to stay home, and has missed him,but Daniel does not consider himself a hero at all. He simply wants to be left alone, so takes off to Spain. It was sort of dedicated to all the crippled and damaged men in the Vietnam War. Very sad song. .
