The chemistry between Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge in their duets is indescribable.

That's why it makes it so hard to believe that the "For The Good Times" singer and Coolidge divorced in 1980 after only seven years of marriage.

The duo performed many duets together throughout the years, including Kristofferson's 1970 romantic ballad "Help Me Make It Through The Night." 

"Help Me Make It Through The Night" was originally written and recorded by Kristofferson, and was released on his self-titled album. Several other artists went on to cover the song, some of the most notable being Elvis Presley, Sammi Smith, and Joan Baez. 

Back in 1972, Kristofferson and Coolidge still seemed to be completely captivated with one another, and they weren't even married yet. Since the two were so clearly in love, their duet of "Help Me Make It Through The Night" on The Old Grey Whistle Test is too sweet for words.

Kristofferson and Coolidge stand so close to one another while they sing that their faces are touching. They both look up from the microphone to glance into each other's eyes, ignoring everyone else in the room.

At several points throughout the song, Kristofferson and Coolidge affectionately rub noses, and Kristofferson gives her a kiss on the cheek when they finish singing.

If you haven't seen a romantic movie in a while, we guarantee that this duet will serve the same purpose...it is that adorable! 

LYRICS BELOW

Take the ribbon from your hair,
Shake it loose and let it fall,
Layin' soft upon my skin.
Like the shadows on the wall.
Come and lay down by my side till the early morning light
All I'm takin' is your time.
Help me make it through the night.

I don't care what's right or wrong, I don't try to understand.
Let the devil take tomorrow.
Lord, tonight I need a friend.
Yesterday is dead and gone and tomorrow's out of sight.
And it's sad to be alone.
Help me make it through the night.

I don't care what's right or wrong,
I don't try to understand.
Let the devil take tomorrow.
Lord, tonight I need a friend.
Yesterday is dead and gone and tomorrow's out of sight.
Lord, it's bad to be alone.
Help me make it through the night.
