    Thanks for this suggestion. It is indeed a useful idea, but difficult to combine with the remainder of the technology on our site. We rely on automatic transcription of the chords from youtube or other audio, but it is not yet possible to automatically transcribe lyrics. If we want to show lyrics, we should get them from some other source. Hence, I do not think we will support lyrics in the near future. However, youtube features a lot of songs with lyrics. If you chordify these you have your synchronised lyrcis on the side.

    -Update-
    We are actively looking into ways of incorporating lyrics to our player. More info on this soon!

    -Update- 22/02/2018
    Unfortunately we are still working out the legalities around displaying lyrics on our website, as lyrics are copyrighted content. We hope to eventually be able to offer lyrics to our users, but it’s unclear when this will be, sorry!

        Totally agree. Chords without lyrics is the end of my subscription. Back to eChords for the solution.

        I love to sing when i play my kontra (this is a tambura instrument like guitar) so this will be realy good idea. and make to people can edit the text and add him.

        It's a great idea to learn guitar while the song itself is playing but I suggest to include normal lyrics and chords as well so you can get an overall view of the lyrics and chords and don't have to fast and forward the song to repeat.

        animated chords with the song itself is great but for learning a normal lyrics and chords can be more userfriendly.
        Eg:https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/m/martin_garrix/scared_to_be_lonely_crd.htm

        Hope you would add this feature soon

        Thanks for all the feedback, everyone. Unfortunately we are still working out the legalities around displaying lyrics on our website, as lyrics are copyrighted content. We hope to be able to start offering lyrics to our users towards the end of the year.

        guitar tabs provides the chords to play above the lyrics of the song why cant you put the lyrics in with the chords as it moves to the timing of the song
        or even with the printed or download sheet

        Engelbert's Love me with all your heart with Lyrics,yet when played no lyrics is shown.
        I was wondering why couldn't lyrics shown at the same time?

        Hello Ingrid,

        Thanks for your feedback. I agree that this would be a good compromise to bridge the gap between now and when we finally will be able to provide lyrics along with our chords (it is a legal maze to make this happen, apparently..).

        I'll make sure to reiterate this idea to our developers.

        Could you allow us to insert our own lyrics in a space beneath the chords? Maybe it can be at BETA thing? Say, if I provide lyrics to so many songs, I get a discount for the month? Or NOT.
        Even if I don't, allowing me to add my own lyrics is better than not having any on the same score. It should be apparent that scores should have lyrics included. Please find a way or a compromise.

        Could you allow a space where we can type the lyrics in ourselves to synchronize with the chords? Maybe it can be at BETA thing? Say, if I provide lyrics to so many songs, I get a discount for the month? Of even if I don't, allowing me to add my own lyrics is better than not having any on the same score. You know, it should be apparent that scores should have lyrics included. Please find a way or a compromise.

        perhaps just making the download chart/PDF easier for pasting the lyrics on ourselves. e.g. more space between the lines to allow pasting

        If available synced lyrics in Musixmatch, show the lyric above the chords... or create your own lyrics database for songs :)
