Music video

The music video of the song was directed by Autumn de Wilde. The video reflects the song's lyrics, and the story they tell: A woman named "Cath" (portrayed by Beth Riesgraf) is about to be wed to a "well-intentioned man," yet she does not love him, and is still infatuated with a former love (portrayed by Lukas Haas) who watches the ceremony. The video was inspired by Emily Brontë's famous novel Wuthering Heights, reflecting Catherine Earnshaw and her torment over marrying Edgar Linton (the "well-intentioned man") when she loves Heathcliff. The band are occasionally show seen sitting in what seems to be a dressing room with a grassy floor, mouthing the lyrics to song.

For promotion, the video was available for remixing on MTV's online video mixer.
