Reila

Since I've met you, how many of the same wounds have I sustained? How many have supported me?
I wanted you to tell only me when you were hurting instead of anyone else
The truth is burned into my eyes What are you, immobolized by silence, thinking?
I don't need a reason If only you return her to me [1]

How much more are you who has become nothing
Hurting than me who has been left behind
Although nothing had started yet
Although I still hadn't said [2] these words to you
Somewhere

Reila...
Even if I try to call out your name
This voice does not reach you...
Reila...
Open your eyes And laugh to show me that it's all a lie...

Lets go somewhere tomorrow If it's somewhere that you wish for
I'll go there no matter where it is

You were always like that As far as I can remember
You were going off to somewhere
Once again you've left me behind and ran off by yourself
I can't reach you anymore I can't reach you anymore
Although I had finally met up with you
Everything that I had held inside of me overflowed
Became tears and spilled out

Reila...
These words that I couldn't say
Reila...
I sing them to you now and here
Reila...
I love you more than anyone else
Reila...
I love you. I love you...

The room that the two of us were in Is still the way it was
I don't lock the door So that you can come home any time
I'm always waiting for you Even though I know [3]
I still can see your figure as you open the door

Tomorrow, you'll surely come home right?

    Reila is not a real person. Ruki made her up like all his other song characters. He's a very great song writer and he feels a lot of emotions towards a lot of things. He's also sensitive to a lot of people's feelings. He cried during Taion. Does that mean he knew Junko Furuta? Better yet in Guren when he acted like he lost a child does that mean he did? Ruki even said so himself that he wrote this song for anyone who has lost an important loved one in their lives. In an interview he even said the song could be for anyone like someone who lost their grandfather.

    Reila was never a person. It's just a song. The fact that he cries when he sings it, shows what talented writer he is, that he lives himself into the song.
    There's so many stories about who "Reila" is. That she's an old girlfriend, that she's actually "Reita".
    If Reila was someone in Ruki's life, we should butt out, and leave it alone. It's his personal life, and we shouldn't make theories about if "Reila" is a person or not.
    Putting that aside, this is a beautiful song, and it has been stuck on my brain a long while now.

    Ruki, or Matsumoto's ex-girlfriend. There's a song about her in almost every album: Bathroom, Dripping Insanity, Reila and a few others. The songs are his way of venting over losing the love of his life and I'm happy that Reita is there for him at least. Friends are to be treasured always.

    It's a beautiful and yet sad song. I really want to make a cover of this song with my band and if it does happen, then there will be tears because i've gon through the same thing. V.v
    The gazette are really inspiring and an awesome band i've come to known.

    I don't know whether it's true or not, but i have heard some people say that "reila" is the name of ruki's ex-girlfriend who killed herself. I can't find any real proof online, but whether it's true or not, the song is still sad and beautiful in every way.
