Last Day Lost

Last Day Lost

BandPopRock

This Maple Ridge quartet tore apart last weekend's International Pop Overthrow and you can expect a lot more. Emo-pop with near- Fall Out Boy melodic hooks and a secret weapon in the shape of totally killer lead shredder Christina Kamlade. TheProvince/ Stuart Derdeyn

Biography


Canada based Last Day Lost embraces the sibling band motif and is earning their place among the pop-indie ranks. The band is comprised of sisters Christina, (guitar & vocals) Sarah, (bass & vocals) brother Bryant Kamlade, (guitar & vocals) and Josh Havinga on the drums.

They’ve opened for Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter, The Headpins and Chilliwack, with support slots for Theory of a Deadman, Hedley and Faber Drive. Five songs from their newest release Places to Hide were submitted to the International Songwriting Contest and the Billboard World Song Contest; all five songs placed in the semi-finals. For three consecutive years Last Day Lost has been a semi-finalist in the Independent Music World Series and for two consecutive years winner of the Original Band of the Year from the Canadian Association of Musical Empowerment and Opportunity.

In 2008 they performed at the highly revered New Music West, performed at Creation Fest 2008 at the Gorge Amphitheatre and toured extensively through the U.S.

Since their 2004 self titled debut, the band has grown and expanded its sound. Places to Hide is an enthusiastic burst of pop energy that explodes live on stage.

Lyrics

Turn of Phrase

Written By: Bryant Kamlade

It doesn't mean much when it's bottled up inside
So say what's on your mind
Little consequence we lost track of time
There's no hope left to find

It doesn't mean much when the angels hide their eyes
What happened to their pride?
You said that we would never die
There's no hope left to find in me

What drugs am I on, they can't save me now
You and your people are a turn of phrase
And I'm looking for something with a little more taste
Everything around here is a broken dream
And I'm looking for something that won't kill me

So stop, we need to find ourselves
So stop, we need to leave this place
So stop, give me some motivation
If I could just stop running, I'd find you

It doesn't mean much when the stars fall from the sky
Can't open up my eyes
I won't look around at my demise
There's no hope left to find in me

What drugs am I on, they can't save me now
You and your people are a turn of phrase
And I'm looking for something with a little more taste
Everything around here is a broken dream
And I'm looking for something that won't kill me

So stop, we need to find ourselves
So stop, we need to leave this place
So stop, give me some motivation
If I could just stop running, I'd find you

You and your people are a turn of phrase
And I'm looking for something with a little more taste
So stop

We need to find ourselves
We need to leave this place
Give me some motivation
If I could just stop running, I'd find you

What I’m Thinking

Written By: Bryant Kamlade

I‘ve been wasting so much time
I thought that I could stay here
But I never realized

My, my eyes are filled with fire
One look and I’m held captive
There’s nothing I can do

And I say, maybe it’s the way, you smile
And I just don’t understand how,
I can’t get through to you.
I guess that you’ll never know,
Until I learn to show you

Let’s go, here’s what I’m thinking,
All my life is what I’m dreaming,
It’s been said a thousand times before,
Sometimes it’s so misleading,
In this life, what to believe in,
I’ve seen you I just can’t forget you,
And I have never felt this way.

I‘ve been waiting for you here
I know I don’t deserve you
But I least I have to try
I, I know your not that way
One look and I’m held captive
There’s nothing I can do.

A Dream We're Leaving

Written By: Bryant Kamlade

Well as the story goes I am gone
Cause I’ve been burning up for too long
You’re an obscurity don’t ask why
Each time I look at you I don’t feel fire

Just a little more time
Just a little more faith
I’m running out of places to find
Just a little more time
Just a little more faith
Tonight

I need you to know
I need you to try
I need you to understand why
It’s just another dream we’re leaving
I need you to love
I wanna be friends
I just can’t stand watching you cry
It’s just another dream we’re leaving

Well it occurred to me late last night
Another alibi we lost this time
I am sorry I want what’s right
Each time I look at you I don’t feel fire

Just a little more time
Just a little more faith
I’m running out of places to find
Just a little more time
Just a little more faith
Tonight

I need you to know
I need you to try
I need you to understand why
It’s just another dream we’re leaving
I need you to love
I wanna be friends
I just can’t stand watching you cry

Bleeding For You

Written By: Bryant Kamlade

The nights are hollow and there’s no time dreaming
Again, again ‘cause I think I found my way
The nights are angry and there’s no time leaving
Again, again ‘cause I think I found my way

Breathe in so deeply
Follow you blindly down

So this is all we’ve got now
Ohh Ohh Ohh x2

Well I can’t stop bleeding for you
And all the things that I do
Can’t replace
Won’t replace you

She’s like a picture that I just can’t get to
The ground is gone and I’m looking for some change
But every time I feel that motion rising
Again, again it’ll never be the same

Breath in so deeply
Follow you blindly down

So this is all we’ve got now
Ohh Ohh Ohh x2

Well I can’t stop bleeding for you
And all the things that I do
Can’t replace
Won’t replace you

And I won’t keep waiting for you
I need something to come through
I’ll replace
I’ll replace you

No More

Written By: Bryant Kamlade

When every little dream that we had keeps slipping away
And the one you take for granted is the one you keep hoping will stay

(Pre-chorus)
So stop
Telling me lies / I never could believe that it’s true
Telling me twice / I never could believe that it’s true
So I say

(chorus)
No more living our lives like this
Pretending every day is just as good as it gets
No more living our life like this

You tried to help me once and I’m sorry ‘cause I pushed you away
And now my motivations dying like an angel who just ran out of faith

(pre-chorus)
So stop
Burning the sky / I never could believe that it’s true
Burning me twice / I never could believe that it’s true
So I say

(chorus)
No more living our lives like this
Pretending every day is just as good as it gets
No more living our life like this

No more living our lives like this
I never want to know if it’s as good as it gets
No more living our lives like this
