Chihiro is the name of the main character in the Oscar-winning Japanese film Spirited Away from the legendary Hayao Miyazaki. In the movie, a 10-year-old girl named Chihiro "Sen" Ogino enters the spirit world of kami, part of Shinto folktales. The 2001 animated film has garnered a cult following in the US as have other movies from Miyazaki including Ponyo, Kiki's Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro and last year's Oscar winner The Boy and the Heron.

There's nothing quite as sad as the ending of a relationship whether that be a friendship, a situationship or a romantic partnering. In track 3, Billie mourns the ending of something and the confusion that comes with it.

Here are the lyrics to "Chihiro" by Billie Eilish:

Billie Eilish "Chihiro" Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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
Feeling sorrow
I got change (Yeah)
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 turned around, but it wasn't your face
Said I need to be alone now, I'm taking a break
How comе when I returned, you wеre gone away? (Gone away)

[Bridge]
I don't, I don't know
Why I called
I don't know you at all
I don't know you, no, I don't
I don't, I don't know
What I thought
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 waiting in the garden
Contemplating, beg your pardon
But there's a part of me that recognizes you
Do you feel that 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?

[Outro]
Running my hands up 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"
(Running my hands up 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")
(Running my hands up my lap)
(And you tell me it's all been a trap)
(And you don't know if you'll make it back)
(Don't say that)
Mhm
