The following is a brief walkthrough on how to get to snowhead temple without the lens:

After you get the lens of truth simply warp back to the nearest warp point or if you don't know the song of soaring go back to the dawn of the first day.

The main reason you need the lens of truth is to get to the hot spring water so you can ultimately learn the goron lulaby. before you procede go to goron village and talk to the baby who is crying for his dad. Then go back to the ice mountain village (ithing it's called.) The hot spring is above a pond near the blacksmith's shop. Once you cross the pond you must climb the cliff using the ladders. This seems easy enough but as it turns out you can't see the ladders because the lens of truth does not work. Here's what you do:

1) Find the climbable area and start climbing. Go over to right until you fall off the ladder. This is where you want to start.

2) Climb upward (as link) 27 steps or rungs of the ladder.

3) Climb right 9 steps

4) Climb up 26 steps

5) Climb left 8 steps

6) Climb up 26 steps

7) Climb right 16 steps

8) Finaly climb upward until you reach the top.

Once you reach the top you can talk to the gorons up there and then enter the cave. Insied there is a piller sort of thing in the middle. This is blocking the spring. Stand directly in front of it and press (A) until you see the ghost of an old goron. He will give you a nice suprise. With this suprise you can move the pillar, get the spring water and unfreeze the crying goron's father who is trapped in a snowball.

I hope this is usefull to some of you. It took me quite a while to figure it all out using the "guess and check" method. Don't worry it gets easier.
