Carrie said in a statement released about the video ” I really connected with Shane’s artistic vision for the video, it’s all about emotion and that moment when a woman has finally reached that point, after the heartache, of being done with a relationship. Shane had the idea to include some beautiful animals that represent the parallels between human and animal behaviour and instincts, which look great interwoven with visuals of emotional women and men. It gave us a way to portray one of my songs in a way we’ve never done before “.
