    I am importing music in mp3 format....which plays in both sides of the headphones.
    But then when i record on a new track... the lyrics are only on the left side of the headphones.

    are you recording your vocals to a mono track?

    your voice and the mic are mono sources. if you record that to a stereo track then you'll hear it on only one side (usually left).

    so you should record it to a mono track and keep the pan center on playback -- then you'll hear it equally from both speakers.

    that probably indicates which input into which the mic is plugged.
