"Love is an Open Door" is a romantic duet and Hans' villain song for the film Frozen, sung by the film's major characters Anna and Hans. The song is sung after Anna explains her loneliness by being shut out from Elsa for years, with Hans promising to never shut Anna out.

Lyrics

Anna: Okay, can I just, say something crazy?

Hans: I love crazy!

Anna: All my life has been a series of doors in my face
And then suddenly I bump into you...

Hans: I was thinking the same thing! ‘Cause like...,
I've been searching my whole life to find my own place
And maybe it's the party talking or the chocolate fondue

Anna: But with you...
Hans: But with you

Hans: I found my place...
Anna: I see your face...

Both: And it's nothing like I've ever known before!
Love is an open door!
Love is an open door!
Love is an open door!

Anna: With you!
Hans: With you!
Anna: With you!
Hans: With you!

Both: Love is an open door...

Hans: I mean it's crazy...
Anna: What?

Hans: We finish each other's—
Anna: Sandwiches!

Hans: That's what I was gonna say!

Anna: I've never met someone--

Both: Who thinks so much like me!
Jinx! Jinx again!
Our mental synch. Ro Ni-zation
Can have but one explanation

Hans: You--
Anna: And I--
Hans: Were--
Anna: Just--

Both: Meant to be!

Anna: Say goodbye...
Hans: Say goodbye...

Both: To the pain of the past
We don't have to feel it anymore!

Love is an open door!
Love is an open door!
Life can be so much more!

Anna: With you!
Hans: With you!!
Anna: With you!!!
Hans: With you!!!!

Both: Love is an open door...

Hans: Can I say something crazy?
Will you marry me?

Anna: Can I say something even crazier? Yes!

Trivia

  • Hans's lyrics contain hints to his true motives; however they are only truly clear in hindsight:
    • "I've been searching my whole life to find my own place" as he gestures out to the kingdom represents his desire to conquer Arendelle. He also gestures towards Arendelle, solidifying this fact.
    • "But with you, I've found my place (I see your face)/And it's nothing like I've ever known before" reflects how he is using Anna to claim Arendelle as his own, and his pleasure of having a kingdom for himself.
      • In addition, viewers know Anna literally sees Hans' face, but it also hints that she doesn't see the real Hans and only the face he shows on the outside.
    • Hans looks bewildered during the "We finish each other's sandwiches" exchange before quickly saying, "That's what I was gonna say!", hinting that he's falsely agreeing with her and his false love for Anna.
    • "You and I" has Hans saying "you" with Anna finishing with "and I," both referring to her. This may be another hint at Hans using Anna in his scheme and to show how selfish she is by wanting to marry him him so quick.
    • "Say goodbye to the pain of the past/We don't have to feel it anymore" represents how Hans is using his scheme to rid himself of the humiliation he suffered with his older brothers.
      • Foreign language dubs, however, have altered lyrics. For instance, the Japanese version's lyrics seem to cleverly hide Hans' intentions, and sound more like a typical Disney love song.[1] Several alterations to the lyrics exist; for instance, the "We finish each other's sandwiches" exchange has Hans ask Anna what she likes and her response is sandwiches, which Hans says in surprise, "That's the same as me!" The European French version also reworks several lyrics as well.[2]
  • This song also introduces the audience to the constant use of doors as a metaphor in the film. This doubles as a villain song, for it is later revealed that Hans' love for Anna was not real love, and that he was only using her as a tool to marry into the throne, though the audience does not know this yet.
  • The song's title, which is also the refrain, holds a double meaning. For Anna, it refers to how she is finally leaving her former life, having been "shut out" by Elsa for years. For Hans, however, it hints at his personal conquest of Arendelle, using his false love of Anna as a way to accomplish his goals.
  • "Love is an Open Door" is the third hero and villain duet, with the first being "Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee" from Pinocchio, and the second being "Out There" from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
    • This is also the first hero and villain duet to be a love song.
  • In Disney's Frozen on Ice, the song is sung just after Anna meets Hans. It is also slightly altered, since the final "Love is an open door!" in the end is replaced by two more refrains. Hans also does not propose to Anna in this version of the song, and instead proposes during the coronation party.
  • In Once Upon a Time, Anna briefly references this song when she yells, "And I sang with you!" to Hans.
  • When Hans and Anna dance in the 'spotlight', their movements are not actually centred, and indeed Hans is always slightly behind Anna in his movements and as he sings, as if trying to keep up his act with her. Even the heart-shape they make at the end has Anna making the symbol first with Hans following her motions.
