Spencer Burton : Diamond

Spencer Burton performs the gentle and lovely “Diamond”.

Hailing from London, Ontario, the singer-songwriter’s artistic process is unique, his style too. If you’re not into country, Spencer Burton is just the guy to make you change your mind. The melodies he uses in his works always make us want to tag along on a folk-country path featuring gentleness and wisdom. We love him.

Discover the splendid “Diamond”, a gem of a song. “If you were a diamond/Would I find you in the dirt/Just laying with the other coal/But still fragile in your worth…/At times you’re just as dark/And I don’t understand/How you call yourself my woman/Though you won’t take my hand…/And if you were a rubyWould you glisten bright red/Would you melt away the eyes of god/And leave humanity for dead…/At times you’re just as bright/If I leave within the dirt/Now your covered by a worldly weight/My ashes dead and burned/We spent nights in angry and lust/We spend nights in demand/And you still call yourself my woman/Though you won’t take my hand…”
