"For the First Time in Forever" is a song in the beginning of Disney's Frozen. It is sung by Princess Anna, predominately featuring her, and soon-to-be Queen Elsa, but is not a duet. A reprise for the song is featured later in the film.


Anna: The window is open,
So's that door!
I didn't know they did that anymore!
Who knew we owned eight thousand salad plates?

For years I've roamed these empty halls,
Why have a ballroom with no balls?
Finally, they're opening up the gates!

There'll be actual real live people,
It'll be totally strange.
But wow! Am I so ready for this change!

'Cause for the first time in forever,
There'll be music, there'll be light,
For the first time in forever,
I'll be dancing through the night.

Don't know if I'm elated or gassy,
But I'm somewhere in that zone,
'Cause for the first time in forever
I won't be alone

I can't wait to meet everyone! (GASPS) What if I meet 'the' one?

Tonight, imagine me gown and all,
Fetchingly draped against the wall,
The picture of sophisticated grace!


I suddenly see him standing there,
A beautiful stranger, tall and fair,
I wanna stuff some chocolate in my face.

But then, we laugh and talk all evening,
Which is totally bizarre,
Nothing like the life I've led so far!

For the first time in forever,
There'll be magic, there'll be fun!
For the first time in forever
I could be noticed by someone.

And I know it is totally crazy
To dream I'd find romance,
But for the first time in forever
At least I've got a chance

Elsa: Don't let them in,
Don't let them see,
Be the good girl
You always have to be.

Conceal, don't feel,
Put on a show,
Make one wrong move
And everyone will know!

But it's only for today.

Anna: It's only for today!

Elsa: It's agony to wait.

Anna: It's agony to wait!

Elsa: Tell the guards to open up

The gate!

Anna: The gate!
For the first time in forever,

Elsa: Don't let them in, don't let them see,

Anna: I'm getting what I'm dreaming of,

Elsa: Be the good girl you always have to be,

Anna: A chance to change my lonely world,

Elsa: Conceal,

Anna: A chance to find true love,

Elsa: Conceal, don't feel,
Don't let them know..

Anna: I know it all ends tomorrow
So it has to be today!
Cause for the first time in forever,
For the first time in forever,

Nothing's in my way!


Anna: You don't have to protect me. I'm not afraid!
Please don't shut me out again.
Please don't slam the door.
You don't have to keep your distance anymore

'Cause for the first time in forever,
I finally understand.
For the first time in forever,
We can fix this hand in hand.
We can head down this mountain together!
You don't have to live in fear...
Cause for the first time in forever
I will be right here.

Elsa: Anna,
Please go back home.
Your life awaits.
Go enjoy the sun
And open up the gates.

Anna: Yeah, but —

Elsa: I know!
You mean well, but leave me be.
Yes, I'm alone but I'm alone and free!
Just stay away and you'll be safe from me.

Anna: Actually we're not.

Elsa: What do you mean you're not?

Anna: I get the feeling you don't know.

Elsa: What do I not know?

Anna: Arendelle's in deep, deep, deep, deep snow.

Elsa: What?

Anna: You've kind of set off an eternal winter everywhere.

Elsa: Everywhere?

Anna: It's okay, you can just unfreeze it!

Elsa: No, I can't.
I — I don't know how!

Anna: Sure you can! I know you can!
`Cause for the first time in forever,
Elsa: Oh
I'm such a fool!
I can't be free!

Anna: You don’t have to be afraid.
Elsa: No escape from the storm inside of me!

Anna: We can work this out together!
Elsa: I can’t control the curse!

Anna: We’ll reverse the storm you’ve made!
Elsa: Anna, please, you’ll only make it worse!

Anna: Don’t panic!
Elsa: There's so much fear!

Anna: We’ll make the sun shine bright!
Elsa: You’re not safe here!

Anna: We can face this thing together!
Elsa: No!

Anna: We can change this winter weather!
Elsa: Ahhhh~

Anna: And everything will be all right.
Elsa: I can't!
