“Seven Wonders” by Fleetwood Mac

If I live to see the seven wonders
I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end
I’ll never live to match the beauty again

It seems highly unlikely that any member of Fleetwood Mac will live to the see the Seven Wonders, given that of the Seven Wonders – the Colossus of Rhodes, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia and the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus – only the Great Pyramid was still standing in 1987 (when this song was released).

Unless we’re talking about something involving time travel, but then, that would be a whole ‘nother flavour of daftness.
