    OK so this is either a weird one or there's something I'm missing. Lyrics have now arrived here for Apple Music. Yay. However, if I play a song via Apple Music the lyrics appear just fine BUT if I add that song to a playlist then play it no lyrics show up. Is this a bug, how it's supposed to work, or what? Seems odd that a song that should be playing via Apple Music in either case behaves differently.

    Further to my first post, can someone explain exactly how Lyrics is supposed to work?

    It turns out that as well as songs added to a playlist not having any lyrics it's the same with whole albums. If I listen to an album Found via a search for it in Apple Music I get the song lyrics. However, if I add that album to my library - no downloading, just adding the Apple Music albu, - then the next time I play that album there's no lyrics. It's the same album, streaming from Apple Music, so how can it being in my Library mean no lyrics available?

    Any thoughts as to whether this is by design or a bug?

    Do you continue to see inconsistency with lyrics appearing or not appearing on any of your IOS devices?
