It depicts Tedder playing at an upright piano, and the band members around him singing and playing their instruments. Shots of Orozco doing Olympictraining in a gym, as well as clips of home video of him competing as a child are shown in between. The single was written by several writers, including all four Gym Class Heroes members, Tedder, Noel Zancanella and Jamie Heffernan.
