Big River To Cross is a heartfelt emotional ballad that includes compositions that we have yet to see Charlie work with. The horn section especially with Andrew Duncan's saxophone solos bring another musical side of Charlie we have yet to see. In this song Charlie and the girl that he loves have to not only go separate ways but also make sure to stay apart for the better of their future. This song delivers the most heartfelt performance so far as Charlie gives more insight into their relationship and into their past.

Lyrics

Let's go swing by the string and let's get stoned
You can say you're at your sister's place and say I'm home alone
Big secret to keep
We should put to sleep
But without you I feel so lost

We've got a Big River To Cross
We've got a Big River To Cross

I know it hurts but I guess our time's come to pass
And I'll always love you but good guys always finish last
But it's hard to keep up the fight when you're the other guy
And doing right feels like a lost cause

We've got a Big River To Cross
Oh We've got a Big River To Cross

I know we're young but it's time that we act like we're grown
I always love you but it's the right thing to leave me alone
Oh let come what may one heel of a fight but it's right for the cause
We've got a Big River To Cross
Oh we've got a Big River To Cross

My pockets' being weighed down by the ring you gave me
So I think I could understand if you felt the same thing
Every time we skip goodbye it's just a lie and I could drown our past with own toss
We've got a Big River To Cross
