True Love Analysis

My favorite added song in Frozen is True Love. However, I still don’t understand why it eventually got cut from the production. It happens at a pivotal and emotional moment for Anna. At least, it still is on the Original Broadway Soundtrack.

I’ve sat alone in this room before
Hours and hours on end
I know this delusional

Wish the door
Will open to reveal a friend

I know this solitude
I know this kind of cold
But I had faith in what the stories told
Of true love
How I’d find true love

And here I am in this room again
Just as lost and small
That lonely girl with a desperate heart
Is who I am, after all

There’s no escaping her
But now the dream is gone
Because I spend a lifetime counting on
True love
True love

I was looking for a fairy tale
And dove headfirst into his
Turns out, you cant find love
If you don’t know what it is

And now it’s clear I’ll never leave this room
It ends as it began
With no one but myself to blame
I played my part
In the plan

Dreaming got me here
And yet the dream won’t die
I can’t wish it away
No matter how I try

True love
True love
True love

Frozen, True Love

True Love is a heartbreaking love song, which Anna isn’t expecting. For those who know Frozen, at first we think Hans loves Anna, but in reality it isn’t what we think it is. It later turns out that Hans is pretending. Anna needs an act of true love to save her life due to a frozen heart- but Hans betrays her and plans to kill her sister, Elsa. This is a way of taking over Arendelle. Ever since hearing of Hans plans, Anna is heartbroken. She doesn’t even know what to do- where will her act of true love be in order to save her life???? True Love happens after Hans betrays Anna- despite the song being cut, I still see it as a part of Frozen. Just like “I’m Not That Girl”, it is another ironic song.
