This Scully-centric music video that features scenes from the Cancer Arc of the X-Files season 2, 4 and 5. It shows Scully's struggles with showing vulnerability,being dependant on others and what the diagnosis means to her, her family, Mulder and Skinner. The song is a dramatic piano ballad taken from singer/songwriter Keri Noble's 2002 debut album Lullaby, although some thunder sound effects elements have been added for the video in the 2004 version.

Original Version

The version originally released in 2002 had a running time on 5:03 minutes and features an intro with the word "tribute to Leyla Harrison" and starts with a voice over by Scully from the episode Never Again but significant less voice overs. Only footage from season 4 and five is used.

Revised Version

Lyle released another, more dramatic version in 2004 which is 10 seconds shorter than the original version. It features more voice overs and additional thunder elements which are not included on Keri Nobles recording. This version also features audio from Scully's therapy sessions with an FBI counselor. The "tribute to Leyla Harrison" text card is also missing. [1]
