Let it Go

Noongom dibik waasegooniyaabikaa
The snow glows white on the mountain tonight

gaawiin waabanjigaadesiinoon
not a footprint to be seen

ninaazhikewiz omaa
a kingdom of isolation

gaye niniigaaniz igo.
and it looks like I’m the queen.

Mashkawimadweyaasin gichibiiwang
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside

gaawiin ingii-gaadoosiin gojitooyaan.
couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried.

Gego biindigaa’aaken.
Don’t let them in, don’t let them see.

Mino’izhiwebizin ikwezens.
Be the good girl you always have to be.

Gego wiindamawaaken.
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know.

Well, now they know.

Bagidendan, bagidendan
Let it go, let it go

can’t hold it back anymore.

Bagidendan, bagidendan,
Let it go, let it go,

gibaakowebinan ishkwaandem.
turn away and slam the door.

Inzaabendaan idamowaad
I don’t care what they’re going to say

manoo izhise
let the storm rage on

gaawiin wiika ingii-baamendansiin.
the cold never bothered me anyway.
