Comments:

Coming from Campbell River ourselves where Marnie Frey was from, we felt the heartbreak of her family as well as the families of the other girls.  My husband wrote and along with his band "Mr. Completely", recorded a song called "Without Warning" about the life of the families left behind from when women/girls take to the streets.  The song was recorded in the downtown Eastside of Vancouver where some of the girls were taken. We would have to drive by the girls in the sex trade to get to the studio. It gave my husband, (Jamie Robertson) so much feeling for what he was singing. You can hear it in the music. We have dedicated this song to the families of missing women.

You can hear it in full length on the New Music Canada website at this address: http://radio3.cbc.ca/bands/MR-COMPLETELY/ - then click on "Without Warning". Thank you for your time. http://www.mrcompletely.ca  (you can also see an older version of the song on video by the band previously called "Month of Sundays" on the band website)

Our old video of this song, with the older version can be seen here... http://mrcompletely.ca/httpdocs/pages/video.htm it helps to put a picture to the words.

 

"WITHOUT WARNING" - the video
This video was made when the band was still called Month of Sundays

 

"Without Warning" - the lyrics

You took off said you felt stranded
Full of fear, empty handed
You left a note that said you had to leave
It said you'd lost your faith
In all the things that you believed

Yesterday you were someone's child
Now you're on the streets
Running scared and running wild
When you left you said you'd call
Now we haven't heard a word from you
Since late last fall

Without warning, then one morning
You woke up gone
Without warning, then one morning
You woke up gone
Without warning,
Then one morning 

You live your life out on the street
You're scared of everyone you meet
Please tell me where did we go wrong
You've been gone away for far too long

Without warning, then one morning
You woke up gone
Without warning, then one morning
You woke up gone
Without warning,
Then one morning

You took off, said you felt stranded
Full of fear, empty handed

Don't Forget (Dreams)
by Reid Jamieson Feb 2007
recorded at home in Victoria
http://www.reidjamieson.com/album3demos/ReidJamieson-DontForget.mp3

Dedicated to all the lost ladies of Vancouver's east side.

Don't Forget (Dreams)

You know
how much it's gonna hurt
When that needle is inserted
in your vein again

You try
to pretend there is no pain
But I see it in the stains
under your fingernails

Hold on tight,
Keep looking for an answer
Hold on tight
Remember younger days
When dreams were
something you could
say you had

Don't forget
because the world
forgot you

When night falls
is the newspaper your bed
Does it have you seeing red
What the people with money complain about

You're drunk
on a can of aerosol
And your tales are getting taller
than the will
to make it work

Hold on tight,
Keep looking for an answer
Hold on tight
Remember younger days
When dreams were something you could
say you had

Don't forget
because the world
forgot you

You spoil your self while asleep
with sweet precious dreams
Held in the arms of your mother

It's gone
the fire in your eyes
The face you recognize
is just another
sad memory

Hold on tight,
Keep looking for an answer
Hold on tight
Remember younger days

Hold on tight,
Keep looking for an answer
Hold on tight
Remember younger days
When dreams were something you could
say you had

Don't forget
because the world
forgot you
