For The First Time In Forever Lyrics

Anna: The window is open!

So’s that door!

I didn’t know they did that anymore!

Who knew we owned 8,000 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!

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


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!!!
