The clip opens with the pop singer-songwriters staring at the television as an emergency alert plays on screen: in the wake of their breakup, an environmental catastrophe is headed straight for North America and the world is over as they know it. As the two musicians contemplate their imminent destruction, they wistfully question what it would take to reunite.

“If the world was ending, you’d come over, right?/ The sky’d be fallin’ and I’d hold you tight/ And there wouldn’t be a reason why/ We would even have to say goodbye/ If the world was ending, you’d come over, right?/ Right?” the two sing on the wistful chorus over sparse piano and echoing percussion.
