They say that the eyes are the window to the soul, and Timberlake plays off of this adage nicely. This is most likely a continuation on the ocular theme that’s present throughout The 20/20 Experience:

I see truth somewhere in your eyes
In this line in particular, Timberlake can sense a feisty side to his lover, the kind that could…well…knock him out.
