Have you heard about the boy who followed the Snowqueen
to her palace of glittering ice, far away on the North pole
where the walls are so high and so cold and so hard
that your soul would freeze over and crack,
have you heard about the boy?
Have you heard about the boy?
Have you heard about the love that combined two children forever,
from the time of their innocent youth, from the time and place where they met?
They held hands 'cross the gap 'tween their windows
to reach out and feel each other's warmth.
Have you heard about that love?
have you heard about that love?
Have you heard about the Queen? Her name is "False Pride" and her touch
will freeze his heart over and glaze it with layers of diamond ice ;
it gets slippery and hard, you can't touch it with love,
so remote that the North Pole seems closer by far,
and the Snowqueen will laugh,
and the Snowqueen will laugh.
Have you heard about the quest to the diamond castle up north
where Aurora riding the sky is the Snowqueen's frozen smile.
And a million cold needles will splinter your heart
and will cut up your feelings in shreds
but the Snowqueen must lose,
oh, the Snowqueen must lose.
Have you heard about the girl that crossed the glittering snow
to bring warmth to her lover whose heart froze to ice
and she found him in bluish green glittering hold
with a icicle smile and a touch that was cold
and the Snowqueen sings out
while they walk to the South,
and the Snowqueen's song ever will follow them here
and creep up through the wind and will fill her with fear.
For the Snowqueen might win,
one day she might win.
