The video, directed by Joe Mischo, finds Gray working in a coffee house watching everyone fall in love around him. He said in a press release: “The best place on earth to people watch is the cafe. The perfect couples talking about their mornings, students studying, sweet couples who’ve sat at the same table for decades. It’s wonderful.

So for the people watching video I brought Ashley to LA and thought I’d play the situation out, really show how much of a beautiful disaster it would be if I were to work at a cafe as I always say I should’ve.”
