The video was directed by long-term Billy Corgan collaborator Linda Strawberry. Speaking to Vulture.com
about the clip, Strawberry explained that the song — full of longing — made her think of the 'Magician' tarot card, which represents the alchemy of fear within a relationship. "The girl in the video is both enlightened and trapped by this theme," she said. "The Magician is symbolic of transition and inspiration, while the protagonist in the video is afraid of who she is about to become, she learns, accepts and then lets go of whatever was holding her back."
