DESCRIPTION
The band is seen performing in a dark hall. This is interspersed with footage of various locations -- cities and landscapes across the States and the UK.
TRIVIA
This is the better known of the two versions made. As the band had been unhappy with the original, they shot this one when the single was released in the U.S.

The performance footage had been shot by Geoff Wonfor prior to Libman's and Williams' involvement and was inserted into the final video.
