Music video[edit]

The music video written and directed by Philippe Andre is a short film with constant background noise and live dialogue playing over the track. Set in the dark hours in New York, the short film tracks the story of a young woman (Kelly Hutchinson) looking for love in the big city. She struggles around the streets carrying a huge red plastic red heart. She attempts to make conversation with a number of passing strangers. Her big heart is thrown back in her face, as all those that pass her by respond with an odd glare. Then, the accumulation of all the rejection makes her heart shrink down to a tiny size. A handsome guy (Joshua Dov) then approaches her to ask her out for coffee. Philippe Andre ended up with a video that was a minute and a half longer than the track, due to the inclusion of a long dialogue only scene in the middle. The film was shot over two nights in New York City.
