Some People Never Know by Paul McCartney and Wings

This song has been running around in my head all day long.

It's an obscure track from a largely forgotten and mostly forgettable debut collection from McCartney and his original Wings band.

The song goes on way too long. (When you're a superstar, your label allows you to be self-indulgent.)

But it's a lovely melody and has beautifully simple lyrics. I love the words of the second verse:
Like a fool I'm faraway,
Ev'ry night I hope and pray
I'll be coming home to stay,
And it's so, some people never know.
[I'm the pastor of Living Water Lutheran Church in Centerville, Ohio.]
