Chichiro Lyrics


by Billie Eilish

 

Song Facts:

  • Genre: Pop
  • Producer: FINNEAS
  • Release Date: May 17, 2024
  • Album: HIT ME HARD AND SOFT

Artist Info:

Billie Eilish is a modern pop singer, so unique and heart-touching with her music. "Ocean Eyes" is the song that has broken her into the music industry, and she has won many Grammy Awards. In most of her music, themes covered talk about mental health, love, and individual struggles. Billie is known to be truthful with her lyrics and stylistic presentation. She is known to have been bullied and fat-shamed, but she was one to prove her style.

Annotations and Meaning:

The song "Chichiro" is about Hayao Miyazaki's movie "Spirited Away". Protagonist Chihiro is leaving both memories and love from the Spirit Realm.
"To take my love away"
She forgets Haku when separating from the spirit world, although they are a very close duo.
"You said you won't forget my name Not today, not tomorrow"
Haku promised to meet Chihiro again after she had left the Spirit World, even though she seemed to have totally forgotten everything.
"Please open the door."
These lines seem to hold more of a symbolic meaning towards one desiring another to emotionally open up. The "closed door" represents being reserved; the open door means invitation. The metaphor dovetails with the imagery on the cover of the album, where Billie falls underwater from a door.
"'Til I come back 'round, will I find what to say?"
It conveys the uncertainty of meeting and reconnection with old friends, much like the way Chihiro and Haku do in the movie "Spirited Away."
"Saw you turn around, but it wasn't your face"
This line could signify the moment in "Spirited Away" when Chihiro's parents turned into pigs, denoting that form can, in fact, change in the world of the spirit.
"I don't, I don't know why I called"
This can be related to some parts of the movie in which the characters lose their identities and also their attachments are satisfied since Haku pretends that he does not know Chihiro.
"And then you came along
Thinkin', excuse me"
Singer speaks about Chihiro's visit to Haku in the garden in "Spirited Away".

Song Topics:

"CHIHIRO" is an emotional bond song. Lyrics demonstrate how relationships and most of all memories can change. In the song, Eilish is very good at using the power of the difficulty in making sense and maintenance of people's connection with others through metaphors. The song hopes for uncertainty in reuniting with an important persons (friends, parents).

Chichiro Song Lyrics

Chichiro by Billie Eilish



To take my love away
When I come back around, will I know what to say?
Said you won't forget my name
Not today, not tomorrow
Kind of strange, feelin' sorrow
I got change (Yup), you could borrow (Borrow)
When I come back around, will I know what to say?
Not today, maybe tomorrow

[Chorus]
Open up the door, can you open up the door?
I know you said before you can't cope with any more
You told me it was war, said you'd show me what's in store
I hope it's not for sure, can you open up the door?

[Refrain]
Did you take
My love away
From me? Me
Me

[Verse 2]
Saw your seat at the counter when I looked away
Saw you turn around, but it wasn't your face
Said, "I need to be alone now, I'm takin' a break"
How come when I rеturned, you were gonе away?

[Bridge]
I don't, I don't know why I called
I don't know you at all
I don't know you
Not at all
I don't, I don't know why I called
I don't know you at all
I don't know you

[Refrain]
Did you take
My love away
From me? Me

[Interlude]
And that's when you found me

[Verse 3]
I was waitin' in the garden
Contemplatin', beg your pardon
But there's a part of me that recognizes you
Do you feel it too?
When you told me it was serious
Were you serious? Mm
They told me they were only curious
Now it's serious, mm
[Chorus]
Open up the door, can you open up the door?
I know you said before you can't cope with any more
You told me it was war, said you'd show me what's in store
I hope it's not for sure, can you open up the door?

[Post-Chorus]
Wringing my hands in my lap
And you tell me it's all been a trap
And you don't know if you'll make it back
I said, "No, don't say that"

[Outro]
(Wringing my hands in my lap)
(Tell me it's all been a trap)
(And you don't know if you'll make it back)
(I said, "No, don't say that")
(Wringing my hands in my lap)
(Tell me it's all been a trap)
(And you don't know if you'll make it back)
(No, don't say that)
Hm-hm
