"Spencer Mulder is a singer-songwriter who’s wit and energy can hardly be contained in an album setting, live he is nothing short of stunning.  A gem in the region that we are excited to share with the rest of the world. We added his songs Rewind and Expired to regular rotation, both of which our listeners love"

- Eric O’Brien-Program Director WBFX 101.3FM-Grand Rapids, MI

"Spencer Mulder has generated a buzz on the music scene for a reason: He clearly possesses the kind of mature, extraordinarily inviting songwriting that turns heads: His rootsy, hook-filled tunes complement a voice that sounds older and more confident than his years. His second studio album explodes with instantly infectious rock, paying musical homage to the Counting Crows and Ryan Adams."

- John Sinkevics, The Grand Rapids Press, mlive.com/grand-rapids

Lyrics

Rain

Written By: Lyrics-Spencer Mulder, Music - Spencer Mulder/Michael Crittenden

RAIN
These nights feel so long
Awake singing the saddest songs
Alone in my bed, wondering where I'd went wrong
I forgot how to shine
Took you're heart and you stole mine
Can't we forget, take my hand and throw it all away

Rain, let it rain
Start coming clean it's our world
Rain, let it rain
And we'll see what we can get ourselves into
Rain, let it rain

It's been awhile, since I've seen your smile
Where have you been?
Never answer your phone so I stopped calling
Can't we forget, just take my hand, lets throw it all away

(Chorus)

I won't give in without a fight
Things were so beautiful, now they're just black and white

Rewind

Written By: Spencer Mulder

Another break in the road
Try to keep moving but it’s easier to just let it go
Spinning out of control
The sun keep rising but the winter is so dame cold

It might be a year or longer
Well I don’t know anymore
Just need some time to rewind
And get my feet on the floor
It hurt so band, lost all I had
Just need some time to rewind
And get my feet on the floor

Aint been dressed in weeks
My only armor from monsters are my bed sheets
The phones throwing knifes
Try to avoid them and make it out alive

It might be a year or longer
Well I don’t know anymore
Just need some time to rewind
And get my feet on the floor
It hurt so band, lost all I had
Just need some time to rewind
And get my feet on the floor

Well there’s nothing I can do, to bring it back
It’s smoke and ash, I’d better get used to
God get me out of this wreak and clear my head
Because I need to get outside and start over again

It might be a year or longer
Well I don’t know anymore
Just need some time to rewind
And get my feet on the floor
It hurt so band, lost all I had
Just need some time to rewind
And get my feet on the floor

Expired

Written By: Spencer Mulder

She don’t want my kisses or company
I got nothing to give her
I just make her sick I think
It used to taste so good, right off the tree
Sat around and got cold
Now I’m not her cup of tea

How’d this love expire?
Did I just grow old and now she’s tired?
It’s hard living without her
Medicating’s required
How’d this love expire?
How’d this love expire?

Well, she wants structure and bills that get paid
She’s got tomcats on her coattail
Like she’s the ace of spades
I wonder if she still has my picture on her wall
And if she’ll call
It’s a hard way to fall, knowing nothing at all

How’d this love expire?
Did I just grow old and now she’s tired?
It’s hard living without her
Medicating’s required
How’d this love expire?
How’d this love expire?

So I’ve been drinking, keeping myself company
Lightening the load that’s been dealt to me
I’m sure she’s found some guy she likes better then me
With a career and two front teeth
I’m sure he more of a man then I’ll ever be
She don’t want me kisses or company
She don’t want my kisses and that’s just what I need

How’d this love expire?
Did I just grow old and now she’s tired?
It’s hard living without her
Medicating’s required
How’d this love expire?
How’d this love expire?

I'm Sorry, It's Over

Written By: Spencer Mulder

My pockets are empty
Bedside’s some money and a lighter
I was looking for answers
But I found nothing that mattered
Read the phone book front to back
I need to find the name of a man, who sells a qualified opinion
To people like me, in my situation

I’m sorry, but there’s no good way to say
It’s over, and it’s time to make some change
I hope you realize that life a game of cards
You play you’re best hand
I’m sorry that it’s over
But I need some change

Ran through the plan in my mind a million times
But I can’t make it past the second line
After all the hi’s and hello’s
I’m lost, that’s all I know
Could someone help me out?

I’m sorry, but there’s no good way to say
It’s over, and it’s time to make some change
I hope you realize that life a game of cards
You play you’re best hand
I’m sorry that it’s over
But I need some change

I wave my hands in air
But you can’t catch a signal
Its gunna hit you like a ton of bricks
And nock you out like a stone
But we can still be friends
It might not be easy
But we can still be friends

I’m sorry, but there’s no good way to say
It’s over, and it’s time to make some change
I hope you realize that life a game of cards
You play you’re best hand
I’m sorry that it’s over
But I need some change

Come & Find Me

Written By: Spencer Mulder

When the day breaks
I’m still stuck in my sheets
I’m still wearing my clothes
But I’ve been dead for eight weeks
Where are you now?
Because you’re a mystery to me
I’ve been gone for so long
I hope you didn’t forget me

Will you come and find me
Because I got lost somewhere, between my head and my heart
Forgot my direction, now I don’t know where to start
Will you come and find me
Because I got lost somewhere, between my head and my heart
And I can’t get out

Lying awake, with ciaos in my head
Well this war can’t be won
When will both sides come to a more even divide?
An, where are you now?
Because you a mystery to me
I’ve been gone for so long
I hope you didn’t forget me

Will you come and find me
Because I got lost somewhere, between my head and my heart
Forgot my direction, now I don’t know where to start
Will you come and find me
Because I got lost somewhere, between my head and my heart
And I can’t get out
