I Want to Pay You Back
The Chi-Lites Lyrics


There's something that I want to give you
I'm gonna give you a five pound box of love
With a million dollar bill on top (million dollar bill on top)
Diamonds on every corner
And a big black pearl for a lock

Use my heart for a key
I want to pay you back (I want to pay you back)
I want to pay you back for loving me
Pay you back for loving me

Gonna give you a cloud of love to sleep on (I want to pay you back)
A determined man to rely on
Love around every corner (I want to pay you back)
Or wherever you might be

Hold you tight, but tenderly (hold you tight but tender)
I want to pay you back (I want to pay you back)
I want to pay you back for loving me, me, me, me

What's the use in denying it, baby
What's the use in us fighting it, baby
What's the use in turning away
When we could be happy each and every day, day, day, day

Oh, I see heaven when we look into the mirror
And an angel when you're asleep
Bright sunshine in the morning (bright sunshine)
Though it may be raining in the street

And now I'm gonna even the score
I want to pay you back (I want to pay you back)
I want to pay you back for loving me
Pay you back for loving me

I want to pay you back (I want to pay you back)
I want to pay you back for loving me
I want to pay you back (I want to pay you back)
I want to pay you back for loving me

There's something that I want to give you

Use my heart for a key
I want to pay you back (I want to pay you back)
I want to pay you back for loving me
Pay you back for loving me

Gonna give you a cloud of love to sleep on (I want to pay you back)
A determined man to rely on
Love around every corner (I want to pay you back)
Or wherever you might be

Hold you tight, but tenderly (hold you tight but tender)

I want to pay you back for loving me, me, me, me

What's the use in denying it, baby

I want to pay you back for loving me
I want to pay you back (I want to pay you back)
I want to pay you back for loving me

I remember being in the 7th grade & my Moms brought me the "Chilite's Greatest Hits" for Christmas. I fell in love with this song. That was 44 years ago & it's still my favorite Chilite's hit. Reminds of the house parties - grinding!
