The Other Side of the Door Lyrics
I walked away
Ignoring words that you were saying
trying to make me stay
I said this time I've had enough
and you've called a hundred times
but I'm not picking up
Cuz I'm so mad I might tell you that it's...

The girl in the song - I suppose that's Taylor - has been cheated by the one she loves. She screams "Leave!" and she slams the door, but deep inside she's hoping he'll throw pebbles to her window pane screaming "I'm in love with you" under the pouring rain, even if she won't admit it.
The song is about the conflicting feelings of being mad at someone but, at the same time, needing them desperately and willing to forgive everything, because, after everything, love is stronger than anything else.

I think that the meaning of this song really speaks for itself.
If not obvious, it means that she is mad at him and dislikes the way she is treated but at the same time, loves him no matter what. It's like asking someone to do something but really wanting the opposite.
To make this more simple, she lets him go but wants him to stay. Conflicting emotions.

It's about getting into a fight with someone you love. You still have your pride, and pretend that it's over with them, but deep down you are wishing that they would come back.

In my opinion, this is not about realizing that love is everlasting, but it's more about sacrifices. She's willing to lose him, because she can tell that if she shows him that he has to work for her, their relationship will be stronger. She feels like she isn't being treated right.
