  • I remember when my heart caught the fever
    You were standing all alone in the summer heat
    I was with my boyfriend, new boyfriend
    He was as sweet as he could be
    One look at you and I was through
    My heart switched up on me

    Like a postcard from Paris
    When I've seen the real thing
    It's like finding out your diamond
    Was from her old promise ring
    Coming back from your fortune teller
    She read your cards upside down
    The meanest thing you ever did is come around
    And now I'm ruined
    (I'm ruined)

    In the evening you can catch me daydreaming
    Did that moment send you reeling just like me
    I should've gone over, right over
    I should've never let you leave
    But it's the never knowing that keeps this going
    And drives me crazy

    Like a postcard from Paris
    When I've seen the real thing
    It's like finding out your diamond
    Was from her old promise ring
    Come back from your fortune teller
    She read your cards upside down
    The meanest thing you ever did is come around

    Just when I thought things were alright
    My eyes played tricks on my mind
    Will I ever be satisfied
    'Cause all I ever seem to find

    Is a postcard from Paris
    When I need the real thing
    It's like finding out your diamond
    Is from an old promise ring
    Come back from your fortune teller
    She read your cards upside down
    The meanest thing you ever did
    The cruelest thing you ever did
    The meanest thing you ever did is come around

    I am ruined
    I'm ruined
    I am ruined, yeah
    I am ruined, yeah Writer/s: JEFFREY COHEN, KARA DIOGUARDI, KIMBERLY PERRY, NEIL PERRY, REID PERRY
