Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Alan Ferguson. It portrays Travis (lead singer) as Romeo "tossing rocks" at Juliet's window. Juliet's parents do not approve of Juliet's relationship with Travis "Romeo" and therefore order Juliet to stay away from him. The video ends with Juliet sneaking out to see Travis perform at a house party. Juliet is played by Addison Timlin.[1]
