Through the air and time
We came to see her
Where the sun collides
She carried us all

For the first time
I wish she'd call
I wish she'd come

And to blame on taste
You could bury us all

For the first time
I wish she'd call
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come

The more you wait
The more you burn
Before we break...through

For the first time
I wish she'd come
For the first time
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come
I wish she'd come

I wish she...

    General Commentthats an interesting way to think about it Manatee.

    I think it's about this girl who every guy can easily get really attached to. yet the girl never stays with one guy and always turns them down. "we came to see her" a guy feels that the girl makes him feel complete. "she carried us all". and the way chino sings, he sings it from a perspective where he doesnt want to get too attached to her at all. he tries but eventually "for the first time, i wish she'd come". he's developed strong feelings for her and he knows how it's going to end and thats why he's frustrated.

    he has all of these thoughts about them being together. "i wish she'd come" - kinda meaning he wants her to come to him, and only him. but he knows that will never happen..

    i love this song. it should of been in the album and the album should of have been called Lovers..

    General Commentgood song and best suitable for one the "underdog" album of that time, deftones have made an album like pantera did with the great southren trendkill, very overlooked and heavy albums

    General Commentmrdevilophonic - interesting comparison! Though don't think this album was quite as ignored as 'Trendkill' (my fave Pantera LP btw), probably because it came right after their "blockbuster" album.

    It makes me sad that this album was held in such low esteem, because SNW seemed like a bit of a backpedal to me. Hopefully the new one will see them back on track.

    I don't doubt that Chino was well aware of the implications of the line "I wish she'd come," but I really think the "wait/burn" lines are more to do with not making a move or taking charge of a situation and watching it pass you by.

    General CommentI forgot to say, I love the way the intro to the song always makes you think the guitars are going to come in a note or two lower. Tense!

    General CommentBeautiful song, really, too bad it was left off the original album. I think it's about sex, or to be more exact, to get a girl to come.
    "The more you wait
    The more you burn"
    The longer you wait for climax, the stronger it is.
    But it's even more so about how hard it is sometimes to get her to come, as much as you want to, before you yourself "Break through" )

    General CommentTo me it's about a girl that he took for granted, but out of nowhere he wants her around, hence "For the first time, I'd wish she call, I'd wish she's come".

    General Commentseems to me that this song implies an already existing relationship between a man and woman. the first part hints at a realization/epiphany about the significance of a woman..
    then he goes to show unselfish tendancies and starts to have feelings for said female that are above strictly carnal attraction. even chino saying:
    "For the first time
    I wish she'd call
    I wish she'd come"
    seems to refer to how he's stepped over himself - in not only the sexual act but outside the bedroom aswell - and wants to put in more effort into pleasing her. this is a metaphor for their relationship as a whole.

    General Comment when i hear this song it makes me think about guys that have sex with girls that they dont care about. But as time went on, he realised that he cared for her and when they would have sex that he actually wanted to please her and not just himself

    General Commentwhat is amazing to me is the fact that, presumably, this song was left off the album because it did not meet this particular band's own standards.

    this song is so fucking good, if it had somehow remained unreleased in any form, it would be better than most songs released officially.
