"For the First Time in Forever (Reprise)" is a song sung by Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) in the 2013 Disney animated film, Frozen.

During this scene and song, Anna tries to convince Elsa to return to Arendelle and reverse the eternal winter she has set upon Arendelle and its land. Elsa refuses as she believes she is still unable to control her powers and that she belongs to be alone rather than with Anna. Finally, as Anna's pleas and Elsa's fear intensifies and becomes stressful, she accidentally blasts Anna in the heart with her powers, which will fatally freeze her.


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 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 (Elsa): Actually we're not
(What do you mean you're not?)
I get the feeling you don't know
(What do I not know?)
Arendelle's in deep, deep, deep, deep snow

Elsa: What?!

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

Elsa: Everywhere?

Anna: Well, 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!

Anna (Elsa): 'Cause for the first time in forever,
(I'm such a fool, I can't be free)
You don't have to be afraid.
(No escape from the storm inside of me)
We can work this out together,
(I can't control the curse)
You'll reverse the storm you've made.
(Anna please, you'll only make it worse!)

Don't panic
(There's so much fear)
We'll make the sun shine bright
(You're not safe here!)
We can face this thing together; we can change this winter weather; and every thing will be all right
(I can't!)


  • This song was a song for Elsa's and Anna's confrontation.
    • This song was not going to be the song for their confrontation. It was supposed to be "Life's Too Short". But they decided to make it this song, most likely because "Life's Too Short" was deemed too aggressive, although the scenes here are roughly of what the song would look like.
