Music video

The music video features Ryan Carnes, who acts on Desperate Housewives, a show of which McIntosh is a fan. It premiered on Video Hits on the morning of July 1, 2006, and is available to view on her official website. Stephanie has said that the video clip took 18 hours of shooting.

The opening scene starts with McIntosh dumping her boyfriend and walking up to a house singing. Once she approaches the door she knocks and a man (Ryan Carnes) opens the door to let her in. After that McIntosh begins to get ready for her catering job and all the people arrive. McIntosh serves drinks as she sings but trips over. No one helps her up and everyone laughs except the man. She runs off to the bathroom and is almost in tears. She sings into the mirror and take off her white shirt revealing a green blondie T-shirt. The man walks in on her and they look at each other.

Then they're walking in the main party area with the man leading her to an unknown place. It is soon discovered that it's a stage and McIntosh walks up and starts to sing. Everyone's cheering her on and she really gets into it. The ex-boyfriend comes in and she pours a drink all over him. Everyone laughs at him and the scene ends with McIntosh smiling and biting her lip.
