On the Verge of Something Wonderful
by Darren Hayes



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 etiquette table
An AC that does not work
A road trip, a car wreck, a paperback novel
A lover who ain't been hurt, damn it

When you let me go, when I'm on my way
When the world below is cold and gray
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

When you let me go, when I'm on my way
When the world below is cold and gray
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 if you like walking in heels
And 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

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 gray
I'm 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
