You can only set properties within the current context (and
the contexts higher up in the hierarchy). So, you can either
keep the property setting where it is and say
\override Score . LyricText ... instead, which means that the
setting applies to all contexts within the Score.
The other option is to move the setting into the lyrics where
you want it to apply:
    \lyricsto "Melody" \new Lyrics \lyrics
    \override Lyrics . LyricText   #'font-size = #' -2
    This is my text!

(Did you notice that you misspelled the name of the
linewidth variable?)
