How about a Lyric Writing Pop up Box?

I would like either pop up box to write lyrics in while a song file is playing or a separate lane to combine lyrics with a melody so that i can collaborate with people. And the ability to have multiple lyric lanes or multiple lyric takes - lyric 1, 2 or 3 would help in the creative process.

I was writing some lyrics last night and putting them in the Song Information box but when the box is up I cannot use the sequencer - I have to close the box. Also the Song Info box does not allow enough text in it.

Could you provide us with a tool that helps you write lyrics along with the song file? I dont know if anyone uses labels to write lyrics or not along the top. Im sure it can be done but the lyrics will have to wrap around in the label box and they might not be easy to follow when sharing.

This is brilliant, sforman. A thing I didn't know I needed, but now I want it and would use it.

Thanks MayorMcCheese. That shows a work-around method to show some text. I was happy with that for a few hours, but the more I think about it, as I've been listening to other peoples music and wondering about doing my own, I get the feeling that lyrics writing is a complex process. It could be a huge opportunity to build in some software support for it, allowing add-on products with poetry tools, maybe chatbot tech to suggest downstream phrases, (heheheh google suggestions, "why do girls___", "is it easy____" ) easy copy/paste/duplicate, and so on.
