As many of you know I was helping Ian with his songs. There were a number of suggestions this forum’s listeners made that Ian incorporated into this version of Time Drags On. He sent me a rough draft, wav form, and asked me for suggestions. I sent an email back but of course that will never be answered.

I took that rough draft and fixed it the best I could. There still is a little balance problem that I couldn’t fix but I did the best I could. I hope my good friend in heaven will smile when he hears this.

The irony is this is the first verse’s last line “Time drags on, but you heal inside”! I must be a slow healer because I worked on this song and this message through watery eyes.

Here is Ian’s last song Time Drags On

Mario,

Thanks so much for sharing this with us. Ian was very a very gifted writer. What a poignant statement for his last song.

A very fitting tribute.

Mario,

Above and beyond is what you did.

On top of that, I really like the song.

Ian is very happy with the song, and the work you did on
it.

Thanks to Ian and You!
