"Some Things Never Change" is a song sung by Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf in Disney's 2019 animated feature film, Frozen II.[1] The song focuses on themes of change, this being the main subject of the film.


Yes, the wind blows a little bit colder
And we're all getting older
And the clouds are moving on with every autumn breeze
Peter Pumpkin just became fertilizer

And my leaf's a little sadder and wiser

That's why I rely on certain certainties
Yes, some things never change
Like the feel of your hand in mine
Some things stay the same

Like how we get along just fine

Like an old stone wall that'll never fall
Some things are always true
Some things never change
Like how I'm holdin' on tight to you

The leaves are already fallen
Sven, it feels like the future is callin'

Kristoff (as Sven):
Are you tellin' me tonight you're gonna get down on one knee?

Yeah, but I'm really bad at planning these things out
Like candlelight and pulling of rings out

Kristoff (as Sven):
Maybe you should leave all the romantic stuff to me

Yeah, some things never change
Like the love that I feel for her
Some things stay the same
Like how reindeers are easier
But if I commit and I go for it
I'll know what to say and do, right?

Kristoff (as Sven):
Some things never change

Sven, the pressure is all on you

The winds are restless
Could that be why I'm hearing this call?
Is something coming?
I'm not sure I want things to change at all
These days are precious
Can't let them slip away
I can't freeze this moment
But I can still go out and seize this day

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah...
The wind blows a little bit colder

And you all look a little bit older

It's time to count our blessings

Anna and Kristoff:
Beneath an autumn sky

We'll always live in a kingdom of plenty
That stands for the good of the many

And I promise you the flag of Arendelle will always fly

Our flag will always fly

Our flag will always fly
Our flag will always fly

Some things never change
Turn around and the time has flown
Some things stay the same
Though the future remains unknown
May our good luck last
May our past be past
Time's moving fast, it's true
Some things never change

And I'm holdin' on tight to you

Holdin' on tight to you

Holdin' on tight to you

Holdin' on tight to you

I'm holdin' on tight to you

These lyrics are shown superimposed on recording session footage of Idina Menzel in the DVD outtakes. They appear to be an earlier version of Elsa's verse in the song.

The winds are restless
Like how I sometimes feel in the fall
But I'm not ready
I love these days, I'm grateful for them all
I'd freeze this moment
If I could find a way...



  • The lyric "Peter Pumpkin just became fertilizer" in the song is a reference to the nursery rhyme "Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater". Apparently, at some point between Frozen and Frozen 2, Anna and Olaf had named a pumpkin-headed scarecrow "Peter Pumpkin" in honor of this particular children's poem, which fell over and started to decompose when this song was being sung.
  • A brief instrumental of the theme is played during the ending sequence of Frozen II, prior to reprise of "Vuelie".
  • Olaf slightly breaks the fourth wall when he sings, “And you all look a little bit older” as he appears to be saying it to the audience just before some people walk by him. Him saying this to the audience could also be a reference to the fact that it had been six years since the first film and everyone has grown a little since then.
    • This is the second fourth wall break in Frozen the first time was Frozen Let It Go.
  • While sitting on the picnic blanket, Anna looks up and reaches towards the sky with her left hand outstretched while she sings "And the clouds are moving on with every autumn breeze." As she sings and reaches out, the camera shows her partially from behind. This may be a nod to Olaf doing the same thing, with the camera appearing partially behind him, while he sings "Oh, the sky will be blue" during "In Summer".
  • When Anna sings “like an old stone wall that will never fall”, a piece of a stone wall on which Olaf is walking falls, which foreshadows the falling of King Runeard's dam.
