Like "Don't Speak
," this one has a lyric written by No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani and aimed squarely at bass player Tony Kanal, her boyfriend for seven years. When he broke up with her, she was devastated, but took a hard look at herself, regained her confidence, and wrote some hit songs.
In "Sunday Morning" she sings about how she thought she knew him so well until without warning, he took her to splitsville. With No Doubt's upbeat ska inflections, it's a buoyant song where Stefani finds her strength, letting Kanal have it in the bridge:You're on the other side of the mirror
So nothing's looking quite as clear
Thank you for turning on the lights
Thank you, now you're the parasite
