Music video[edit]

There are 2 versions of the video.

Version 1: The video begins with the band sitting on the table while people are eating at the table when they are frozen except for the band. After Johnny sang the chorus, he leaves the table and the scene shifts to a Japanese marketplace where the band are seen playing through the aisles and appeared on a recording camera. At the end of the video, the band ends up back at the table where they sat by the people.

Version 2: A music video was filmed for the song and featured a young woman wandering around a city at different times of the day, sometimes walking the streets or sitting in a bedroom, alone. The video emphasizes the loneliness and desperation behind the song's lyrics.
