[Chorus]
Let it go
Let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door

[Verse 1]
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 the 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 had to be
Conceal, don't feel
Don't let them know
Well, now they know


[Chorus]
Let it go
Let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door

And here I stand, and here I'll stay
Let it go
Let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway


[Verse 2]
It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all
Up here in the cold thin air
I finally can breathe
I know I left a life behind but I'm too relieved to grieve


[Chorus]
Let it go
Let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let it go
Let it go

The cold never bothered me anyway

[Bridge]
Standing frozen in the life I've chosen
You won't find me, the past is all behind me
Buried in the snow


[Chorus]
Let it go
Let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door

And here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let it go
Let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

    Leaving behind a life where no one understood you, cared about you, or even loved you, and finally finding your own little place where you can be yourself your own little safe haven and you can get away from all the stress and misery of being alone, being an outcast, and being the one who nobody cares about.

    This song means to don't hide. Don't hide in the dark when u can be anyone you want and show your pride in the light. You can let what people say roll off your shoulders like rain. It doesn't matter if you are a certain race or gender. Keep your ground and prove you are perfect no matter what your personality is. Let it go and live your life to the fullest. A bullies mean feelings towards you are like a storm. They just build up inside until it gets to the point where u cant even control your own feelings. Don't let it build up inside you. If you don't like what Someone says then tell them. Prove to bullies and victims that u can be strong and do/be anyone u want to be. If u are gay then tell the world. If you are a slut or prostitute then wear what u want. Show the world that u r a strong character. If u are overweight then do as much fitness as u want and prove u r beautiful. Lady gaga says be who u want. Pink says you are perfect. Adele says love is strong. Bruno Mars says your personality matters to the people who love u most. Micheal Jackson says the world and people love u if u show love back. Demi location says you are u no matter what people say. Remember life is not going to be easy but holding your feelings in will make it harder.

    My feelings that this song tells me about is bullying. Bullying,the people who was bullied doesn't wanna tell it but they have too in order to stop the mean act. However it could but different based on your personality. Anyways I really love this song. It's great with the movie and the character.

    I love this song and I feel it discribes me. I have to hide behind a fake fasquade every minuet of every hour of every day, it sucks. I can't be me. I wish I could, like the person in the song. Nobody understands and I really wish their narrow, stupid minds would let someone besides carbon copies of themselves in. Give someone else a chance. That is what this song means, in my point of view! I wish someone would stand up and LET IT GO!!!!!!!! THAT'S WHAT THIS SONG MEANS!!!!!!!!! I want someone to understand. And everyone should, that's what this song states, that is what this song means. And it someone disagrees... Then dislike this meaning, I don't give a crap... somebody... stand up for what you believe in! you'll feel a lot better. Trust me...

    I can interpret the song as a message to tell people to be original and confident and not be tied to the ideas of others/perfectionism/etc., in other words, It's about being yourself and showing who you really are to the world rather than masking yourself with a pretend persona. Probably one of the most powerful songs I've ever heard. No wonder why Frozen is so successful globally!
