"Fern Dell" as written by Mandy Moore and Mike Viola....
These are the thoughts that keep me up at night
Asleep with you
Dull dog bark and no bite
In love with a fool feasting for my eyes

Fern Dell
Fern Dell
I thought I knew you well

Follow the kicks and punches with the rest
Rearrange the furniture hoping it would make more sense
It didn't make a difference
It only made a bigger mess

Fern Dell
Fern Dell
I thought I knew you well

Ha ha
Ha ha
Ha ha
Ha ha

Ha ha
Ha ha
Ha ha
Ha ha

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Here he comes along
Fresh in from the kill
Blood on the sheet
Lined up on my windowsill

Suddenly
Hollow me
Regrettably you never will

Fern Dell
Fern Dell
Oh
Fern Dell
Fern Dell
I thought I knew you well
I thought I knew you well

    General CommentMandy Moore said on her website:

    "This was included in the first batch of songs recorded. It's about how first impressions can change and how they really have the power to affect the world around you."

    General CommentAfter her cd booklet, a few changes. Basically: "asleep with the dogs, all bark and no bite",
    and "here comes Malone fresh in from the kill/slaughtered the sheep lined up on my windowsill/ something's got a hold of me/regrettably you never will". More meaningful
