The clip takes the song's story of a reunited couple with Taggart and Halsey seeing each other in a hotel bar and reflecting on their time in Tucson, per the lyrics. In between scenes of their past and present, they're seen in bed together while still a couple, singing the song as they roll around and kiss. The video ends with Halsey exiting the bar as Taggart follows her out, finally locking eyes.
