    How do I go about getting my lyrics? Some of my songs that have it don't display it anymore. What gives?

    Just tap the album art in the Now Playing screen. Bit different to iOS6 but still there.

    Ios7 on iPhone 5
    Settings-->Music-->Lyrics & Podcast Info is on (green).
    Tapping the album does not display lyrics for me.

    Is there another setting I'm missing?
    Do I need to actually download lyrics somehow, first?

    I'm more concerned about Lyrics with the iTunes music purchases. I want them.

    I didn't know there was a difference. I can't get any lyrics and I only own itunes purchased music.

    The RIAA is against that...they feel you need to pay extra for the lyrics. The RIAA is still stuck in the old world of CDs, where you couldn't display the lyrics even if they were on the CD since the players had no displays.

    Sites that offer the lyrics (I use them myself) are often sued by the RIAA just like the sites that offer pirated downloads. The reasoning is the lyric sites get money from advertising on their sites, so the RIAA should get a cut. Plust they consider it piracy.

    They could offer songs with lyrics, but they would need to come up with a format to do it - where would the lyrics go? and they would need the companies like Apple and Android and the others to agree on how to store/use the lyrics AND how much more the songs with lyrics would cost.

    In other words... No more lyrics? Is that a joke?

    I said nothing of the kind. I merely stated getting lyrics legally is a touchy issue for the RIAA camp and obtaining the lyrics an be difficult.

    Maybe you didn't put the lyrics in iTunes?

    Because when I download a song I manually have to looks for the lyrics on google then just copy and paste them onto iTunes.

    I'm actually quite happy with lyrics in the iOS music.app because lyrics from iTunes Match songs actually show up now. This wasn't the case in iOS 6.

    I can recommend Get Lyrical as an easy way to find lyrics.
