Sarah Jarosz's new Build Me Up From Bones is, in many ways, a classic coming-of-age tale, loaded with songs about revelation and inspiration. In "1,000 Things," she searches for meaning in the tidbits of insight we offer one another at the beginning of a relationship, particularly when the trivialities of youthful romance are behind us.
