Most guys show their love by making their girlfriends a romantic mix CD. Florida singer-songwriter David Martin
wrote a bunch of songs for his wife, recorded them, and put them on an iPod for her. I just wanted to celebrate our love and tell her how much I appreciated her, he says. We make a lot of withdrawals in our marriage. This was a major deposit.
@cal body 1:The songs became Martins debut album, Something Your Eyes. The 10 tracks are unabashedly romantic. Songs like Our Love, I Will Love You, and To You are all about the 30-year-olds undying love for his wife, whom he started dating when both were 15; they got married right after high school. Every song I write is like 'Heres my journal -- read it,' he says. It comes with the territory, so I wasnt hesitant about releasing these songs. Martin isnt worried about inspiration either. He says hell have plenty of material for more albums<\!s>.<\!s>.<\!s>. as long as his wife sticks around. You write about your life, he says. You cant live in a box and expect something cool to come out. Ive always written about love. Thats who I am.
