Music video

The video is directed by Dave Meyers. Throughout the video, Orrico portrays a number of women with different yet hectic lives: a poor mother in debt, a member of a busking band, a long-distance marathon runner, a supermodel, a diner waitress, a businesswoman, a gang member, and a BASE jumper.

The video ends with Orrico portrayed as a regular girl in a crowd, before finally disappearing as a passerby walks by.
