Why would anybody want that? The lyrics should be placed between the

I can count quite a few times where I have wanted this, not only with
hymnal-like music either. I can't imagine I'm the only one, but maybe I am.
This usually comes up when I want to center some lyrics between two
PianoStaff staves.

So the point is that setting staff-affinity to #CENTER in the Lyrics context fails to meet expectations. We should fix that, it’s more like I’m in doubt if Y-offset of any grob is the best way. It’s more a question of how to place the entire line, i.e. Lyrics context.

Best, Simon
