lifeblood: songs: backgrounds: fleet of hope

emily saliers quote from 2011-06-10: indigo girls' emily saliers talks about harborfest show, new album, the newport news daily press

"it's about relationships, but it makes references to the safety of the jetty and the fleet in the harbor, then going out into the rockier waters where the sharks are feasting. ultimately, it says that if you go out into those rough waters, one day, poseidon is going to have you. it's about relationships and the rockiness of them and how beautiful the hope of new love is, but the treachery of the deeper waters. it uses all kinds of nautical references as metaphor for relationships."
