Leigh wrote this some years back to pep herself up. Yeah, it worked.

There's a video too: vimeo.com/348270473

lyrics

You start out tall at the top of the stairs
But as you move on down you become aware
Of the voices on the landing far below
You take your cues and make your bows
But there's no encore anyhow
Until you reach the ending of the show

Don't be afraid, we have arms to hold you
Hearts that will never scold you
Tears we will shed for you alone
This is your hour, you were born to take it
Strong enough now to make it
Bold as you reach to claim the prize

You start out tall at the top of the stairs
But as you move on down you become aware
Of the faces on the landing just below
You know the prize and you know the price
And you know the rolling of the dice
As you turn your face towards the final show

Give all you have without counting effort
Fight and don't ever give up
Stand and you'll make this ground your own
Be who you are, and be all you can be
Don't doubt you're called to be here
Rise to the challenge of the day

You start out tall at the top of the stairs
But as you move on down you become aware
Of the forces that are building here below
You start out tall at the top of the stairs
But as you move on down you're unaware
Of the joy that lies in wait for you to show
