Dierks Bentley’s ‘Say You Do’ Video Finds Singer Heartsick and Alone
Dierks Bentley's 'Say You Do' is a more serious release for the singer following 'Drunk on a Plane.' The video may have one thing in common with the previous, but it's a drastic change musically.
Bentley's 'Say You Do' video starts similarly to his last -- with a plane. That's the only tie between the two videos, however. 'Drunk on a Plane' was a funny visual for a hilarious song, but this clip is of a much more serious nature. This time, the singer is clearly hurting as he steps out of his plane to find a black motorcycle waiting. In between clips of Bentley belting heartsick lyrics from a lonely cabin, he arms himself with dark aviators to take his cycle for a ride through Canada.
He walks through the empty cabin, feeling the piano, chopping wood and sitting alone on the bed as he longs for someone, yearning for her to reciprocate and "say you do."
“I think it’s pretty evident there is a hardcore yearning going on in this song, and personally, it’s something I’ve experienced in the worst of ways in past relationships,” Bentley says of the 'Say You Do' lyrics. “This song is about wanting something so badly even if its not good for you, just wanting that love back, which is something I think everyone can relate to at some point in their life."
In the dim light of a fireplace, Bentley drinks a glass of red wine. One remains on the table, for the guest who never arrives. Knowing he's going into the night alone, he also takes down a glass of whiskey. In the morning, the second glass of wine is still untouched, and the superstar rides away on his bike.
