Some of these “Let It Go” lyrics had been posted before, but this version is the final, full version and includes a never-before-heard verse!
“Let it Go” Lyrics – Original music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez
The snow glows white on the mountain tonight Not a footprint to be seen A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I’m the queen The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried
Don’t let them in, don’t let them see Be the good girl you always have to be Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know Well now they know
Let it go, let it go Can’t hold it back anymore Let it go, let it go Turn away and slam the door I don’t care what they’re going to say Let the storm rage on The cold never bothered me anyway.
It’s funny how some distance Makes everything seems small And the fears that once controlled me Can’t get to me at all
(Cut from the film, but kept in Demi Lovato version) Up here in the cold thin air I finally can breathe I know I’ve left a life behind but I’m too relieved to grieve!
It’s time to see what I can do To test the limits and break through No right, no wrong, no rules for me, I’m free
Let it go, let it go I am one with the wind and sky Let it go, let it go, You’ll never see me cry
Here I stand and Here I’ll stay Let the storm rage on…
My power flurries through the air into the ground My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast I’m never going back The past is in the past
Let it go, let it go And I’ll rise like the break of dawn Let it go, let it go That perfect girl is gone Here I stand in the light of day Let the storm rage on The cold never bothered me anyway!
Listen to “Let It Go”
On a personal note, this song holds a very special place in my heart. We heard it at Destination D in August of 2012 and I had it in my mind for months! Then was just to excited about it that I went ahead and sang the little bit of what I could remember because I wanted other people to be that excited as well! You can see that video here. That was February and now we’re here! Even more excited than ever! If you thought what we’ve done in the past was cool… just wait!
