The impression I recieve from this song..listening AND performing, is that the "male lead" in the song considers himself to be lofty and ethereal and tries to bring the "female lead" up to his "standards" and finally realizes (at the same point in which she clearly shows him she is not interested) that she is a "mere mortal" (ie.feet of clay)and as often happens in real life situations...that which cannot be attained is sour grapes. Probably a less romantic impression than some...but who says people can't think themselves better than others? Even poets. From tragedy is born beauty.
