In case you mishear lyrics as famously as I do, I'll let in know now that the lead vocalist is not singing "I read you opera. I thought you were a safe bet."
It would have been oh so romantic if he had been, because seriously, how can one read opera? That's like writing a painting or drawing a song. An impossible feat, but love knows no bounds, right?
The real gem of the song, or at least the lyrics I feel a kinship with are:
She tries too muchEnjoy the tunes!
She doesn't smile enough.
She's got these great ideas
And no one to hear them
