  • [Chorus:]

    Let the time flow
    Let the love grow
    Let the rain shower
    Let the rose flower
    Love it seeks and love it finds
    Love it conquers, love it binds

    We come to each other from different worlds
    Drawn to each other by the love inside of us
    We give to each other our different worlds
    Long as we can do it
    Life is gonna breeze right through it

    We reach for each other from different worlds
    With love for each other that will stand the test of time
    We're up to the challenge of different worlds
    With this love inside us
    There is nothing can divide us

    Love it seeks and love it finds
    (Love it seeks and love it finds)
    Love it conquers, love it binds

    Love it seeks and love it finds
    Love it conquers, love it binds Writer/s: FOX, GIMBEL

  • Seventh Mist from 7th HeavenThis beautiful song would probably be even better known, had "Angle" played for more than just one year. ABC kept moving it to different time slots and then pulled the plug when they should have given it another year at least.
  • Mark from New JerseyTook me a while to remember how this went so I could look this up. I can remember the show coming on and I loved the song. I would always listen to the song and then change the channel lol.

  • Arthur from New JerseyHelen Reddy played a singing nun in "Airport '75.". Maureen McGovern spoofed Reddy's performance in "Airplane." Helen Reddy had a hit, "Angie Baby."
