Biography

With a solid fan base from her success as an actress and a singer, Erin Simms is poised to be the next big thing.

With her vocal strength and powerful stage presence, Erin opened for performers such as ALANNAH MYLES, SASS JORDAN, AIR SUPPLY, PILATE, BY DIVINE RIGHT and shared the stage with SAM ROBERTS and JACKSOUL, all within the first 4 months of ever performing. With nothing but stellar reviews and an ever-growing buzz, Erin headed into the studio to record her songs with Montreal’s Albert Chambers and Mike Litresits (of Juno award winning band “Sky”) and is now ready to hit the ground running with her fresh Pop/Rock sound. She currently performs weekly with her professional rock cover band “Shine” at venues such as Bourbon Street North and the Montreal Casino and just recently headlined the MOLSON INDY on Crescent Street to 5000 people.

Everyday

Written By: Erin simms

EVERYDAY
Written by: Erin Simms & Jaan Silmberg

Intro:
Seems like everyday, things would be better if you stayed
Time can’t take it away.
Would it be better if you really, really wanted to stay?
If you stayed…

Verse 1:
I don’t want love that makes me lose my mind
Makes me feel like I’m working overtime
I can’t stay, always run away
I’ll take my pride, it’s easier to play

Chorus:
Seems like everyday, things would be better if you stayed
Time can’t take it away.
Would it be better if you really, really wanted to stay?
If you stayed…

Verse 2:
I don’t want love that makes me think of you
I’m so tired of feeling like a fool
No man has, made me stick around
I guess I’ll stay running underground
Now that I’m trying to break through
I feel my heart running back to you.

Chorus 2:
Seems like everyday, things would be better if you stayed
Time can’t take it away
Would it be better if you really, really wanted to stay?

Bridge:
They tell me someday there will be
Someone who comes to me and saves me, Yah..
But now that I’m all on my own
I wish I would never have known you baby..

Chorus 3:
Seems like everyday, things would be better if you stayed
Time can’t take it away.
Would it be better if you really, really wanted to stay?
Seems like everyday, things would be better if you stayed
I can’t heal all this pain
Would it be better if you stayed, if you stayed, if you stayed?

Oh no..
You’re still all I know..
Everyday..Baby yah

Dream

Dream
Written by: Erin Simms, Jaan Silmberg, Albert Chambers

Verse 1:
Broke my heart in every way
Can’t believe how much has changed
We’re miles away so far apart
How much of this can take my heart

Pre:
And I don’t why I tried to make you love me
And you almost said the words to make me stay

Chorus 1:
I dream a little dream of you
What I thought this could be
You played for me for the fool that I was
All you left was my dream

Verse 2:
Repeat to me the same old song
You promised me you’d do no wrong
So much for words you’ve torn my heart
Will I be strong or fall apart

Pre:
Now I don’t know why I can’t stop thinking of you
Because it’s all been such a waste of precious time

Chorus 2:
I dream a little dream of you
What I thought this could be
You played for me for the fool that I was
All you left was my dream

Bridge:
You filled me up inside, and we damn near had it all
Said you’d be there till the end, never ever let me fall
Now I’m upside-down, and out here in the cold
No use hanging on your lies, Oh no

Chorus 3:
I dream a little dream of you
What I thought this could be
You played for me for the fool that I was
All you left was my dream
I’m saying it’s over
I’m not coming back, look over your shoulder
I’m not coming back

CHANGES
WRITTEN BY: ERIN SIMMS & ALBERT CHAMBERS

Verse 1:
DOESN'T ANYONE, DOESN'T ANYONE HAVE TIME TO DREAM OUT LOUD
DON'T LOOK AROUND, DONT BE AFRAID CAUSE THEY WILL BREAK YOU DOWN, I'VE SEEN IT ALL
THEY SAY THEY KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU
I THINK I'LL MAKE THAT CALL

Chorus 1:
I DON'T WANNA MAKE MORE CHANGES
YOU THINK THE FACT THAT I'M A PART OF YOU
IS ALL IT TAKES TO CHANGE MY MIND
I'M SORRY I WON'T BE A SECOND YOU

Verse 2:
IT'S HARD ENOUGH, HARD ENOUGH JUST BEING WHO YOU ARE
WHO HAS THE RIGHT, WHO GETS TO TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE OR CHANGE YOUR HEART?
IS IT DREAMS THAT THEY'RE MISSING
OR THEY'RE JUST SCARED TO FALL

CHORUS 2:
I DON'T WANNA MAKE MORE CHANGES
YOU THINK THE FACT THAT I'M A PART OF YOU
IS ALL IT TAKES TO CHANGE MY MIND
I'M SORRY I WON'T BE A SECOND YOU
I DON'T WANNA CHANGE MY LIFE

BRIDGE:
I'VE MADE MISTAKES
I’VE TRIED IT ALL
WE FAIL SOMETIMES AND FEEL SO SMALL
NO I WON'T BE SCARED
I DON'T CARE
THERE'S NOWHERE ELSE FOR ME
CAN'T YOU SEE?

I DON'T WANNA MAKE MORE CHANGES
YOU THINK THE FACT THAT I'M A PART OF YOU
IS ALL IT TAKES TO CHANGE MY MIND
I'M SORRY I WON'T BE A SECOND YOU
I WON'T LET MY DREAMS START FADING
PRETENDING THAT I'M HAPPY BEING YOU
I DON'T WANT TO CHANGE MY LIFE
SO LOVE ME NOW FOR WHAT I WANNA DO

DOESN'T ANYONE, DOESN'T ANYONE HAVE TIME TO DREAM OUT LOUD?
