Quote about the video-
“I wanted the music video to portray the complexity of falling love – the vulnerability, the uncertainty, the insecurity. Love can be the most beautiful thing and the most painful thing at the same time. The push and pull between the dancers portrays lovers’ frustrations, while their tenderness displays what we all ultimately want.” – PRIME
