The video first aired on The Wendy Williams Show on Friday, 13th November 2009, when Brown was a guest on the show. The video opens with Brown sitting on an edge of a bed and he starts singing, his heart is shown lit up red and beating in his chest. He then walks into an alleyway on a winter's night, revealed in the air as he breathes. He is then shown in a desert, and then returns to the winter night scene as Cassie sees him and they walk towards each other meeting face-to-face. They gather close, but Brown does not reel her in as the video ends. Joseph Kahn: "It's an interesting video for me, because it's so rare that music videos ever try to achieve anything emotional. Chris just basically told me a story of what he felt this video was going to be, with his heart glowing and how he's, like, cold. It is a very personal story. But it's told in such a graphic manner that I fell in love with the idea. It's Chris' story. Period. I am the pencil that put it down on the paper."
