"El Matador" as written by and Jake Slichter....
Matador sweeps the veil
From the last young day of my life
Malibu tides inhale
Santa Ana Winds from behind

Wade out into the water
No more chances this year
I busied myself all summer
My day for swimming is here
Yes it's time

Seaside revelations
All those dreams and visions of mine
Washed up like a vacation
Lost as I wasted my time

Looking through my dark glasses
I see smiles on the faces of friends
But time keeps pushing me on now
And I'll ride this wave till the end

Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile
Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile

Say goodbye to the weekend
And the last of the summertime sun
Driving off the end of a decade
So many things to be done

September and the trees are restless
Wind chimes blow in the dark
Lying on the couch defenseless
With blue clouds court and spark

Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile
Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile

Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile
Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile

    General Commentthis is one of the greatest songs. and i too lorna am reminded of summer growing up and basically thats what i interpreted this song to be about. its about growin up, having to leave behind the people you've always known and everyone has their day when they must move on in life. quite nostalgic and sad
