      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.

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

      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…

      Using YouTube lyrics videos is a good idea, but in a similar way could you perhaps iFrame in lyrics from another source, like Google lyrics? Or allow a frame where the user can input a URL to pull lyrics into another frame? That way you wouldn't be hosting or storing the actual lyrics.
