"To the Dreamers and lovers and those who don't fit in. Let this be where the adventure begins. You're the rarest and best in all the world. Every angry boy and every broken girl. All that matters is to be yourself. You'll never be happy living for someone else. So always be brave and always be kind. Know that you don't have unlimited time. So make the most of today, don't wait for tomorrow. Fill your heart with joy, not with sorrow. Music is for the good and for the bad. It's for the most wonderful and the saddest sad. So stand out and always be true. Because no ones a better you than you. So believe in true love and all of its madness. Even though before it ended in sadness. The best things in life you have to fight for. Never settle search for more. Keep on fighting, living, and dreaming. Don't ever dare stop believing. One day it will all make sense. Don't quit because the obstacles life presents. Because in the end it makes you who you are. Every smile and tear, every broken heart. Music is the medicine that makes it all better. I hope I can share it with you forever. Through all I have been through music has helped. My dream is to share that with someone else. If my music moved someone my life would feel complete. And I would have finally captured my dreams. So to you these emotions and stories I share. You're not alone there's someone who cares. My songs are the tales of a hopeless romantic. I believe in fairytales, rock and roll, and magic!!!

"This song is about my first love, the kind of love they write fairytales about, and make movies about."

The video shows the story of a young couple who fall in love. It goes from showing the couple's cute tale of romance. To the sad realization that sometimes things don't workout and hearts are broken. Leaving one side to "never be the same" because they thought they would be together forever. ( "I thought you would take my last name") While simultaneously showing Harrison's band rocking out in the snow! The song won Best Love Song for the California Music Video Awards!
