"I Can't Lose You" is a song from the stage musical adaption of Frozen. The song was first performed on the 2019 North American national tour, and replaces the reprise of "For the First Time in Forever", which previously featured both in the animated film and original Broadway adaptation.

Like the song it replaces, this is a duet between Anna and Elsa, and takes place shortly after Anna arrives at Elsa's Ice Palace.

The song was released as a single on 18 March 2022, performed by national tour cast members Caroline Bowman (Elsa) and Caroline Innerbichler (Anna), to mark Innerbichler's departure from the cast.


I Can't Lose You (Official Music Video) from FROZEN the Musical-2

Official music video


Standing frozen in this life I've chosen
Please don't find me, the past is all behind me
Leave me in the snow
Let me go

Anna: No, Elsa wait! Don't go!
Elsa: I'm just trying to protect you.
Anna: You don't have to protect me. I'm not afraid!
Elsa: What do you want, Anna?

This. Just you and I talking
And chatting, and taking up space
And you. You look so at peace
Which I did not predict after all that took place
I'm so sorry. I didn't know, I couldn't see
I knew you were hiding, but selfishly thought
You were hiding from me

That's why I've come all this way
To look in your eyes and say

I can't lose you, not again
I can't lose you like then
If you could see yourself the way I do
Then you'd see why I can't lose you

Wait! I'm happy you came
But it's not safe to stay here and talk
Don't get close, this is all so brand new
Let me first learn to crawl before I try to walk
I'm at home here. Out in the cold, up in the air
But it all turns to chaos near people I love
And with how much I care

Please don't remind me to feel
Believe me, the danger is real

I can't lose you, not again
I can't lose you like then

You don't know the things that I can do
Keep your distance 'cause I can't lose you
(Anna: ...I can't lose-)

You have to listen. I've come here to tell you
That everything's different now that I understand

I know you mean well, but the air's getting colder
Just leave me alone. Let me get this in hand

But I'm here for you. We can fix this together
For once try to trust me. I'm begging you now

Don't you see I'm the storm? And you make it worse?
I would fix it, but I don't know how...!

Both: I can't lose you, try to see
Anna: Why can't you turn to me?
Elsa: I'm trying to tell you that

Both: I can't lose you, like before
Elsa: As much as I wish, I can't open that door
Anna: Why can't you open that door?

If you loved yourself the way I do
Then you'd see why I can't lose you!
