"Pay You Back With Interest" as written by Graham Nash, Alan Clarke and Tony Hicks....
Too many people need me
I've got so much
So much to do
But when my traveling is over
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest
It seems unfair to leave you
And sell myself the way I do.
But when my wandering is over
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest
Most of my life I've been moving
And when I tire out I'll come home to you.
But until then I'll be waiting
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest
How cold is my room, (How cold is my room)
Without your love beside me?
We look at the same old moon (Looking at the moon)
But you're not here beside me
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest

    General CommentBeautiful song about life on the road and missing one's loved one. Orchestral bells and Bobby Elliott's drums outro make this song for me, as well as the usual Clarke/Hicks/Nash vocal harmonies and the quavery (trippy?) piano intro.
