Music Video Info:

The official music video, released on May 19, 2010 was directed by Aggressive and has a futuristic theme to it. The video features Jordan sitting in the back of a car, while the man she loves is sitting on a bench right outside.[10] The two are breaking up and exchange last looks just as the wind picks up setting the city in motion. The road begins sliding and Alexis' car is carried away as she begins to sing the song.

The video is intercut with scenes of Jordan singing the song alone, as well as dancing with four other back-up dancers.[11] The video also shows scenes of an elderly holding a Dalmatian by its leash as the sidewalk moves and the dog must walk on it like a treadmill to stay in place. At the end of the video, Jordan stops the city, and reverses it's motion sending the car back to the man she loves.[11][12][13]
