Music video

The music video features Lenny performing in a small club setting in front of an audience full of people of different ages, races and walks of life. Kravitz is singing soulfully to the woman that he is in love with, while flashing images of the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ appear in the club. Another scene shows back and forth imaging of the woman and of a shirtless, frustrated Kravitz boxing and lifting weights in his exercise room. The instrumental bridge features choreographed break dancers as Kravitz plays Spanish guitar, while in the end Kravitz and the woman are seen dancing together amongst the large crowd of people. The video features American model Megan Ewing.
