“I can’t wait all day.”

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter V) on Rap Genius

Meaning

Gatsby is getting cold feet about meeting Daisy. It’s ironic that Gatsby cannot wait all day, because he has been waiting much longer. The moment he’s been preparing for, the destiny he’s been creating for five years is going to happen in close to two minutes.
