Counting in the Quiet
Count in the quiet when the music goes out and learn to trust the beat. Your heartbeat, your breathing, your footsteps, your instincts--trust them.
There might be a band backing you or you might be out on your own, but there will inevitably be stretches of nothing when it is only you and your pulse. When the monitors go out, when your ears begin to buzz, when the world becomes so overwhelming your senses shut down, and you are faced with measures of silence.
Count in the quiet.
Count in the quiet and keep your song moving, keep yourself moving, trust your beat. Always keep playing, though it seems by yourself, keep to your chart.
The music will start.
