Music Video

In the music video, a girl is writing a note to give to her boyfriend before she leaves. When he gets home, she's gone and he's left with the note. He sometimes gets letters and post cards from her about her trip to Santa Monica, while he's home wishing she was with him. While in Santa Monica the girl has a tough time. She is eventually driven to stripping and prostitution. She finally gives up and the last shot in the video is her walking back into her ex-boyfriend's house after finally calling him and saying how miserable her life had become.
