I've come across the need to temporarily split lyrics into two "stanzas" (in repeated sections).
The code I am confronted with does this by using some kind of polyphony construct, but this ends up creating a new \Lyrics context that is added below the lowest staff instead of directly below the original Lyrics context:

How can I make sure the split lyrics end up next to each other?

There is a nuisance with the second associated lyric voice starting too late, so you have to compensate somehow, perhaps like this:

\version "2.19.80"
notesA = \relative {
  c'' d e d | c8 [ b ] c  d  c4 g
notesB = \relative {
  c' d e d | c b c e
words = \lyricmode {
  A B C
      D e -- f g
    \new Lyrics \with { alignBelowContext = "LyricsA" }
      \lyricsto "upper" { E -- F G }
  C  G
\score {
    \new Staff \new Voice = "upper" \notesA
    \new Lyrics = "LyricsA" \lyricsto "upper" \words
    \new Staff \new Voice = "lower" \notesB


Thank you, this gets me on the right track (although I'll have to think if I can nicely integrate this in the infrastructure so the editor doesn't have to add the low-level code in the actual content file).
