Australian singer/songwriter Darren Hayes has just released the music video for his single “On The Verge of Something Wonderful’, from the pop/electronica album, This Delicate Thing We’ve Made.

The song and music video were co-written and produced by Darren Hayes and Robert Conley.

The music video contains a cameo appearance by Janice Dickinson, former model and former judge on America’s Next Top Model. According to Hayes himself, having Dickinson appear in the music video was not planned at all. The day before the video shoot, Hayes had briefly met Dickinson through a friend and – after being struck by how much grace and star quality Dickinson carried with her up close – Hayes jokingly said that she could play the part of the evil, sexy shopaholic in the video. To everyone’s surprise, Dickinson accepted the offer.

Lyrics for On The Verge Of Something Wonderful

A serpent, a rabbit
A walk in the forest
A tentative looking sun
A feeling, a moment
A bursting of bubbles
A panic to overcome

A samurai, an angel
An eloquent table
An AC that does not work
A road trip, a car wreck
A paperback novel
A lover who ain’t been hurt

When you let me go, now I’m on my way
When the world below, is cold and grey
On the verge of, on the verge of something wonderful
A resurgence, on the edge of something wonderful

For it, against it
Said he’d never meant it, but Harry still dropped the bomb
A trip to the dentist, the Hollywood black list
A moment that time forgot

Shopping woman in On The Verge music video

When you let me go, now I’m on my way
When the world below, is cold and grey
On the verge of, on the verge of, something wonderful
At the edge of, on the verge of, something wonderful

You can dance in the devil’s shoes, you like walking in heels
There’s a decent living to be made in the selling out of ideals
You can lose your way in the big city
Get distracted and lost and feel pretty, Ooh, Ooh …

I want you, I need you
I don’t wanna please you, or belong to anyone
But life is for leading, for not people pleasing
A race that has never been won

When you let me go, when I’m on my way
When the world below, is cold and grey
On the verge of, on the verge of something wonderful
At the edge of, on the verge of something wonderful
On the verge of, on the verge of something wonderful
A resurgence, on the edge of something wonderful
