Twitty’s version was released in July 1974 as the second single from the album I’m Not Through Loving You Yet. 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.


I see the sparkling little diamond on your hand
It’s plain to see that you’ve already got a man
I can tell you’re not about to fall for any of my lines
I see the want to in your eyes
Deep in your smile there’s a quiet, soft desire
Like the ember of a once raging fire
You know I could light that fire again
You know it isn’t wise
I see the want to in your eyes
How strong is a band of gold
Is it strong enough to hold
When a love has grown cold
And a woman wants a love, sweet and warm
How many women just like you have silent schemes
How many men like me do they sleep with in their dreams
You can stay or you can go and although I sympathize
I still see the want to in your eyes
I see the want to in your eyes
