Robin Thicke and Paula Patton may be in a good place since their February split, but the singer's new music video video hints there's still much to overcome before he can "Get Her Back."

Released early Monday morning, Thicke's video for "Get Her Back" gives fans more than just the raw, apologetic emotion heard in the title track. The singer seems to be cluing viewers into the reasons behind their separation following their decades-long relationship and nine years of marriage.

As Thicke, 37, croons his lyrics, bubbles of text – which seem to be between two lovers – appear. Given that the video features only the singer and a woman, who bears a passing resemblance to Patton, it's an easy assumption that the dialogue is supposed to be between a man (Thicke) and his lover (Patton).

The messages are often frank and include insinuations of alcohol abuse and other misbehavior.



"You drink too much," one character, presumably the wronged woman, types. "You embarrassed me. You ruined everything."

The opposite character responds with the succinct: "I hate myself."

One of the other messages, which seems to be from the contrite man, seems to be a self-referential nod to Thicke's public attempts to woo back Patton, including naming his album after her. "I wrote a whole album about you," the message reads. The female's response? "I don't care."

Still, like Thicke, the man is undeterred. The final text box reads: "This is just the beginning."
