Just A Few Words:
After some digging I found the movie lyrics.  I decided to translate this just to figure out why they were so different.  While this version is more of a word for word translation from the English version, the pop version definitely flows better.  However, I do appreciate that they translated "let it go" (like most of the other versions) in this version.
