The video features the members of Danity Kane in a futuristic theme. The pink special effects are used to represent the setting of being within an actual heart. Throughout the video, choreography is done along with the music and the girls are shown in a futuristic room with screens of them performing the choreography, which they see while laying down on a futuristic bed. Towards the end of the music video, the beds that the girls are lying on close to form a heart, which happens to be the heart of a man on a stretcher in a hospital. Medical staff, who turn out to be the members of Danity Kane, try to revive him. The music video then transitions to a setting where the man is in his bedroom with a note on him saying "Tired of the damage – DK".
