"Let It Go (Idina Menzel cover)" as written by and Kristen Anderson-lopez Robert Lopez....
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

The snow blows 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 try

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

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold you 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

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 left a life behind but I’m too relieved to grieve

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold you 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

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

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold you 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

Let it go
Here I stand
Let it go, let it go
Let it go

    My InterpretationSo let's begin.

    "The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
    Not a footprint to be seen,
    A kingdom of icealtion
    And it looks like I'm the queen,
    The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
    Couldn't keep it in,
    Heaven knows I tried"

    She wants to escape reality, into her own world, where she can be the boss of herself. But her emotions carry over.

    "Don't let them in, don't let them see
    Be the good girl you always have to be,
    Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know,
    Well now they know"

    She was always taught to suppress her emotions, and so, suffered a life with bottled up emotions. But they didn't do her any good. Because her bottles leaked. But in that, she learned that her emotions could be let free.

    "Let it go, Let it go
    Cant 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"

    She is fine with letting go of her emotions, because they've always wanted to be free. She doesn't care if people don't accept her for who she is. Because she was always taught to blend in, but that isn't the kind of person she is. She's fine being by herself, because at least then, she can let her emotions run amok.

    "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 to relieved to grieve"

    Once she distanced herself from the situation that was her life, she is in control of her own life. She doesn't have to listen to anybody else. She doesn't have to be anybody else. She doesn't have to fit in anymore. She can be herself, but that would mean leaving her old life behind, the one that caused her so much anguish, but she's fine with that.

    "Standing, Frozen
    In the life of chosen,
    You won't find me,
    The past is all behind me
    Buried in the storm"

    She is able to stand tall in a world that doesn't accept her. But it doesn't affect her. Because nobody has the power to have control over you and what you feel and fear, unless you give it to them. And that power is hers and belongs to nobody else.
