Music video[edit]

Powter is shown at a party where people are romantically experimenting with each other, enjoying themselves or completely passed out. The video also contains random shots of guests while Powter appears, from the start, sitting, later he is standing in random areas of the party and also walking around while alone and singing directly to the camera. Although, as the video begins approaching the end, Powter is shown performing on a white grand piano with a drummer backing him up as he entertains the others.
