"Sunday Sun" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Haven't got a lot to learn
And my eyes they stray again
Looking for a satellite
In the rays of heaven again

There's no other ending
Sunday sun
Yesterdays are ending
Sunday sun

Jealous minds walk in a line
And their faces jade the strain
Stranded in infinity rooms
And they're safe from any harm

There's no other ending
Sunday sun
Yesterdays are ending
Sunday sun

There's no other ending
Sunday sun
Yesterdays are ending
Sunday sun

There's no other ending
Sunday sun
Yesterdays are ending
Sunday sun

    General CommentYes, it is great, but I'm surprised no one has put a meaning down.

    As everyone knows, Sea Change was the break up album, full of morose tunes that make anyone who's ever experienced a break up sad and depressed.

    Well Sunday Sun is the beginning of a bright new future. The tune is upbeat, the lyrics are for the most part. Beck is healing from his loss. This song probably gives me the most hope out of any of the songs on this cd, this and Little One.

    General Comment"Jealous minds walk in a line/And their faces jade the strain/Stranded in infinity rooms/And they're safe from any harm "

    I think he is talking about his memories of his ex here and the "infinity rooms" are those areas in his mind, where, he has successfully buried her and the pain of thinking of her so deep in his head that in reality he's the one safe from harm. The ex would be jealous in his mind because he's just about over her, and he thinks she can't be over him yet. Beck's using plurals, ie. "their" to show his detachment. The "jade the strain" is just referring to the line of green (with envy) faces passing through his mind as he discards them.

    That's the most I can make of it that seems to fit with the up-beatness/hopefulness of the rest of the song.

    General CommentI don't find much hopefulness here; the repeating piano figure is calm enough, but also unsettling. The song ends by fizzling into static and chaos.

    I, too, wonder about that last stanza.

    Stranded in infinity rooms
    And they're safe from any harm

    A puzzling image: endlessly trapped yet "safe"
