"I See the Want To in Your Eyes" is a song written by Wayne Carson. The song was first recorded by honky-tonk singer Gary Stewart and appeared on his 1975 album Out of Hand.

The song was Twitty's 11th number one on the country chart. The single stayed at number one for two weeks and spent a total of 13 weeks on the chart.[2]
