The music video was filmed in Paris and shows Tina walking through a tunnel, dressed with a leather jacket and jeans. Later she is sitting on a public staircase and we see a lot of young people coming the this place, sitting next to Tina and singing the song together with her. The clip is available on the Celebrate! home video as a bonus.
