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
Is from an 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
Is from an old promise ring
Coming 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
Coming 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
I am ruined

Yeah, yeah

    She can't forget about a guy who she believes is her soulmate. Then she thinks she's forgotten and got over him some and he returns to her memory for some reason and it's driving her crazy not knowing what "might have been" if she and he would have gotten together. Now, she can't feel like that about anyone else and feels she never will cuz it's a "once in a lifetime" feeling that she has never felt with anyone else and probably will never feel again. I love this song cuz it's happening to me right now. Can't get past these feelings. Probably never will. I'm never in the right place at the right time.

    She finally found what she believes to be her soulmate. She wishes she would have went over to him and got to know him cuz she can't stop thinking about him. Just when she thinks she has him out of her mind, he re-enters it and she feels like no one will ever make her happy now cuz she was meant to be with him.
