music videois directed by Marc Webband features two single people, a male ( Jason Adelman) and a female ( Samaire Armstrong), waking and going about their daily schedule. The video shows this happening over a three-day period, but makes no distinction between the days. The main event is the two adding graffitito the same wall, separately, on each day, culminating in the completion of a heart. At the end of the video, life mirrors the image created on the wall, with the boy offering the soaking wet girl a red umbrella in the pouring rain, as a cab stops for them. Parts of it are shot in a split-screen. Throughout the video, Powter is shown with his beaniehat, playing his piano. The Metro Red Line subway in Los Angeles was used during the shooting of this video.
Billboard called the song "one of the great discoveries of the year." [Taylor, Chuck (
