And I live to see your face
And I hate to see you go
But I know no other way
Than straight on out the door
Here we have another great contrast, the speaker is torn between love and hate. The love of watching their face, the hatred of watching them go. Perhaps the love is pulling him towards them while his other feelings are propelling him “straight on out the door”. He knows its the only real way to move on.
