    Hi Kieren,
    without even looking at your example, to be honest, but a shot in the dark:
    Fo you still remember David's and Mike's "magnetic snapping lyrics"?
    This snippet eventually went into OpenLilyLib, and was apparently 
    rediscovered as non-working about a year ago by Urs, see

I've just been doing some choral engraving where lyric hyphens are eliminated 
where there is no space.  And I haven't used any special tools.  It may only 
work where \textWidthOn has added space to the notes.

Consider Christmastime in the following snippet.


\version "2.19.80"
global = {
  \key g \major
  \time 3/4

bass = \relative c {
  % Music follows here.
   r4 r d4 |
  g8 g16( fis) g4. a8 |
  b8 c d4 r8 d |
  c8 b g( d4) e8 |
  f8 g f4 r8 r |


bassVerse = \lyricmode {
  % Lyrics follow here.
  Good peo -- ple __ all, this Christ -- mas -- time
  Con -- si -- der well __ and bear in mind

\score { <<
  \new Staff = "tb" {
    \clef bass
    \new Voice = "bass" {\bass}
  \new Lyrics \with{
    \override LyricText #'font-size = #-1
  } \lyricsto "bass" \bassVerse
