    I'd rather......

    "I'm very busy at the moment. I can't talk to you. I'd rather you (came) tomorrow. "

    The above sentence is quoted from a grammar workbook.

    I don't understand why they used (came) after (I'd rather)?

    If I have a choice, I'll use (come) instead of (came).

    Can anyone help?
