Seven Wonders Song

A man standing in front of a castle with Borobudur in the background

So long ago

Certain place

Certain time

You touched my hand

On the way

On the way down to Emmeline

But if our paths never cross

Well, you know I’m sorry, but

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

The rainbow’s edge

So it’s hard to find

Someone with that kind of intensity

You touched my hand, I played it cool

And you reached out your hand to me

But if our paths never cross

Well, no, I’m not sorry, but

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

The rainbow’s edge

So long ago

It’s a certain time

It’s a certain place

You touched my hand and you smiled

All the way back you held out your hand

If I hope and if I pray

Ooh it might work out someday

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

If I live to see the seven wonders

I’ll make a path to the rainbow’s end (I’ll make a path there)

I’ll never live to match the beauty again

(You’ll never live to see the beauty, the beauty, that same same beauty)

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

(Oh well if I hope and I pray, well, maybe it might work out some day)

Seven Wonders Song Information

“Seven Wonders” is a song by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac from their fourteenth studio album, Tango in the Night (1987). Stevie Nicks performed the lead vocals on the song, and it was written by Sandy Stewart, with contributed lyrics by Nicks.

In the song, Nicks remembers a love affair from her past. She sings that even if she should live to see the Seven Wonders of the World, doing so would not compare to the beauty of that romance. The song was released in June 1987, by Warner Bros. Records, as the second single from Tango in the Night. The song climbed to number 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on 15 August 1987.

The single was also available on the 12-inch single format, which included an extended remix, a dub mix and an instrumental, “Book of Miracles”, which later became the track “Juliet” on Nicks’ fourth solo studio album The Other Side of the Mirror (1989). A limited edition 12-inch picture disc version was also released in the United Kingdom.

In the accompanying music video, Nicks is singing in the center of a stage with the other members of Fleetwood Mac around her, playing their instruments and contributing vocals. On a background diorama, sketches of seven ‘wonders’ are pictured, including the Taj Mahal, the Roman Colosseum, and the Sphinx. Greek pillars are also placed around the stage.
