This is unfortunately one of the major disadvantages of 
Debian; if you want to update to a newer version of a 
single package, you often have to upgrade a most of the
system. If you read the installation instructions for 
Lilypond, you'll find a link to
which contains newer Lilypond versions compiled to 
work together with the current stable Debian.

Otherwise, I actually recommend that you compile and 
install Lilypond yourself from the source code. In 
principle you just have to run './configure', 'make'
and 'make install', however you probably have to 
install a few '*-dev' debian packages to get the 
necessary include and lib files. Installing 
'guile-dev' and 'tetex-dev' should be a good start.
