About the songEdit
The song was written in the pre-recording stage of Living In Fear, with the same lineup as for their previous album in 1985 (Robert Palmer, Andy Taylor, John Taylor and Tony Thompson). However, John Taylor was going through a divorce at the time, as well as entering drug rehab, and pulled out before the song was recorded. Instead Bernard Edwards, the producer, played bass guitar and took over as the group's official fourth member.
"Living In Fear" is an up-tempo rock song in a similar style to Def Leppard, which features powerful guitar chords performed by Andy Taylor.

Living in fear, heartquakes Don't lift a finger for fear you'll offend You can't tell your conscience from an instinct - Or a trend Last year's neuroses are now all the rage Your aberrations could be earning you a wage Take 'em to the stage Constant anxiety - panic is near - living in fear Rampant paranoia - everyone's a victim God's become a lawyer - everything's addicting - Heartquakes Living in fear, heartquakes Get yourself sued for an incorrect thought, oh no Hide your opinions or end up in court I'll give you a figure - go ahead and sue Got a hair trigger - got a short fuse - Gimme and excuse Constant anxiety - panic is near - living in fear Legislated passion - prenuptial agreements Ugliness as fashion - prophylactic demons Your foundations shaking - prices keep inflating Values all corrupted - coitus interruptus Heartquakes Living in fear, heartquakes Living in fear, constant anxiety - panic is near Hide from your conscience, you're living in fear
