"Monster" is a song performed by Caissie Levy in the Broadway adaption of Frozen. The song takes place during Hans's attack on Elsa's ice palace. In during which, Elsa questions her morality and struggles on the course of action she should take to save her people and kingdom from the eternal winter.

It was first released, publicly, as an exclusive to The New York Times" website on February 22, 2018, to commemorate the show's preview performances.[1]

It is "pre-prised" earlier in the show by the song "Hidden Folk".


It's finally come
Come to knock down the door
I can't hide this time
Like I hid before

The storm is awake
The danger is real
My time's running out
Don't feel, don't feel

"Fear will be your enemy
And death it's consequence"
That's what they once said to me
And it's starting to make sense

All this pain, all this fear
Began because of me,
Is the thing they see
The thing I have to be?

A monster, are they right?
Has the dark in me finally come to light?
Am I a monster, full of rage?
Nowhere to go, but on a rampage?
Or am I just a monster, in a cage?

End this winter
Bring back summer
Keep your guard up

No harm comes to her!

End this winter
Bring back summer
Keep your guard up!

What do I do?
No time for crying now
I started a storm
Gotta stop it somehow

Do I keep running?
How far do I have to go?
And would that take the storm away
Or only make it grow?

I'm making my world colder
How long can it survive?
Is everyone in danger
As long as I'm alive?

Was I a monster from the start?
How did I end up with this frozen heart?
Bringing destruction to the stage
Caught in a war that I never meant to wage
Do I kill the monster?

Father, you know what's best for me
If I die, will they be free?
Mother, what if after I'm gone
The cold gets colder, and the storm rages on?

No, I have to stay alive
To fix what I've done
Save the world from myself
And bring back the sun

Elsa: (Ensemble:)
If I'm a monster, then it's true
(End this winter, bring back summer)
There's only one thing that's left for me to do
(Keep your guard up)
But before I fade to white
(End this winter, bring back summer)
I'll do all that I can to make things right
(Keep your guard up...)

I cannot be a monster
I will not be a monster
Not tonight!
