With a soft falsetto and an acoustic guitar, Galen Crew builds a beautiful paean to the power of self-acceptance. It is a classic example of finding something sweet in the process of being hurt, and making a statement about letting things happen organically.

Life is a puzzle, and the pieces are us: our memories, our relationships, our promises, and our failures.

“I know I’m broken
I know I’m hurting
I know I hurt you too
I’m not sure what I am missing”— Galen Crew

The solution lies in the details. Crew discusses being ‘assembled’, and takes a look at the energy he dispenses in the process of evaluating the individual components of a life well-lived.
