"A Little Opera Goes A Long Way" as written by and Adam R. Young....
I'll save you
An echo from the hall
And I'll paint you
A dream scape on your bedroom wall

Pretend you're not alone
Like you are center-stage on Broadway
Cause when you're on your own
A little opera goes a long way

I'll meet you
Where the page proclaims the end
And I'll make due
With the fractions my reactions bend

Pretend you're not alone
Like you are center-stage on Broadway
Cause when you're on your own
A little opera goes a long way

I'll capsize this high rise
And weld the cable car
And I'll drive down
To some southwestern town
And end up where you are

Pretend you're not alone
Like you are center-stage on Broadway
Cause when you're on your own
A little opera goes a long way

I'll reset
Your silhouette
And be your carousal
So hold onto
Your florescent view
And if you slip and fall
I will catch you

    General CommentThis is just a guess, but someone on YouTube commented on this song saying "A little opera goes a long way" is a quote from Batman Begins (you can look it up and see the clip online). It comes when young Bruce Wayne leaves the opera with his parents because he's scared of the bats (which leads to his parents being murdered). When Bruce's mom asks whats wrong, his dad says this to cover for Bruce's fear.

    SO...I think it's Adam Young's subtle way of saying "It's ok. I got you" to the recipient of this song. There are several phrases that show his desire to save/rescue this special someone, probably from loneliness and fear.

    I think the overall meaning of this song is "I'll do whatever it takes to cheer you up". It's a version of a love song focused on helping/comforting the other person.

    Whatever it means, it's a beautiful song musically.

    General CommentThis probably has nothing to do with the song but in a psychology textbook I have it said that listening to opera before bed is supposed to help you sleep and Adam has insomnia so maybe there is a connection, but not likely.

    General CommentAdam is not super famous, but almost all of the people that listen to him love him. I just wish more people would love him as much as I do.
