“There’s these feelings that I get when I’m by myself, like this radical independence and freedom,” Fletcher says to start the video. “And I only get them when I’m alone. And those are the feelings that I just feel like you should never let die.”
The video then shows two parallel stories — one with Fletcher, and the other with Ballerini. At first, they’re shown in happy relationships, kissing their co-stars Ava Capri and Gavin Leatherwood. But things start to fall apart as the video goes on.
“‘Cause baby, I loved you at your worst / And I fixed your heart, but mine still hurts,” the pair sings on the song’s chorus. “And now some other person / Is gonna get the better version of you.”
The last line of the song flips things around, as they sing, “And now some other person / Is gonna get the better version of me.” At this point, the two singers bump into each other while eating at a diner.
