And after a quick Twitter search, I've discovered I AM NOT ALONE:

Like, moms are singing about catching fish in their cars:

My dad thinking Katy Perry is singing about catching fish in that Calvin Harris song has made my day.

Jess: "Have you ever heard the song 'fish' by Katy Perry? It's awful!" Me: "... Do you mean feels?" Jess: "No it's definitely fish." Smh😂

This girl's over here just trying to understand the metaphorical meaning:

And Michael is so confident in the lyric, he's tweeting it in caps:

But even though we're all very wrong, at least we know we're not alone during this devastating moment in all of our lives:

Devastated to discover that the lyrics to Calvin Harris ft Pharrell and Katy Perry's song are 'don't be afraid to catch FEELS', not 'fish' 😭
