Re:Re: (pronounced R-E-R-E in English) is a song performed by Japanese Rock Band Asian Kung-Fu Generation from the album Sol-fa, released on October 20, 2004. In 2016, the song was rerecorded and primarily featured as Boku Dake ga Inai Machi's opening theme. In Flashing Before My Eyes, the song is used for ending credits. In Treasure, a graffiti under the bridge spells out "Re:Re:", which is used to commemorate the anime's opening theme.

Artist comment

"We are very honored and happy that our song "Re:Re:" will be used as the opening theme for "Boku Dake ga Inai Machi". I read the original manga with great excitement (sometimes going back to the pages) and was very much looking forward to the anime adaptation. (I had also made a reservation to record the first episode of the anime, but ended up watching it in real time. LOL)

"Re:Re:" is a song we wrote in 2004, but when we read the lyrics again, there are many links to the story, and we were able to go into the recording with a new feeling. We would be happy if you love this song along with the story.

We look forward to enjoying the future development of the anime together with you."

-Kita Kensuke of Asian Kung-Fu Generation[1]

Lyrics

君を待った 僕は待った
途切れない明日も過ぎて行って
立ち止まって振り返って
とめどない今日を嘆き合った
記憶だって 永遠になんて
残らないものとおもい知って
僕はずっと掻きむしって
心の隅っこで泣いた そして
どうか なくさないでよって
高架下 過ぎる日々を
後悔してんだよって
そう言い逃したあの日
繋ぎ合った時もあった
ほどけない感情持ち寄って
それが僕のすべてだった
それもたった今 失くしたんだ
形だって 時が経って
変わりゆくものとおもい知って
僕はずっと掻きむしって
塞がれた今日を恨んだ そして
どうかなくさないでよって
高架下 過ぎる日々を
後悔してんだよって
そう言い逃したあの日
君を待った 僕は待った
途切れない明日も過ぎて行って
僕は今日も掻きむしって
忘れない傷をつけているんだよ
君じゃないとさ

Kimi wo matta boku wa matta
Togirenai ashita mo sugite itte
Tachidomatte furikaette
Tomedonai kyou wo nageki atta
Kioku datte towa ni nante
Nokoranai mono to omoishitte
Boku wa zutto kakimushitte
Kokoro no sumikko de naita
Soshite douka nakusa nai deyotte
Koukashita, sugiru hibi wo
Koukai shiten dayotte
Sou iinogashita ano hi
Tsunagiatta toki mo atta
Hodokenai kanjou mochiyotte
Sore ga boku no subete datta
Sore mo tatta ima nakushitanda
Katachi datte toki ga tatte
Kawariyuku mono to omoishitte
Boku wa zutto kakimushitte
Fusagareta kyou wo uranda
Soshite douka nakusa nai deyotte
Koukashita, sugiru hibi wo
Koukai shiten dayotte
Sou iinogashita ano hi
Kimi wo matta boku wa matta
Togire nai ashita mo sugite itte
Boku wa kyou mo kaki mushitte
Wasure nai kizu wo tsukete irun dayo
Kimi ja nai to sa
