The directional complement 过来 guòlai implies that an action moves from the other side and comes towards the speaker, e.g., 开过来一辆车 gāi guòlai yíliàng chē  a car is approaching. 过去 describes a movement which moves away from the speaker, and towards the other side, e.g., 把茶拿过去  bă chá ná guòqù take the tea over there.
