Hi there,

I honestly can’t understand what you’re trying to achieve…   =\

Having done a lot of work with Schenker graphs — which have a lot of the same
issues and "look & feel" as chants — perhaps if you can explain it a little
better, I can help figure out a better way to accomplish what you’re attempting.

There’s the obvious manual way:

words = \lyricmode {
Some \set stanza = "*"
\tweak self-alignment-X #-0.25 \markup \concat { words \hspace #2 } \set
stanza = "*"
toooo \set stanza = "*"
go longword \set stanza = "*" un -- der notes
}

But I still feel like if I knew better what you were trying to do, I could
figure out a programmatic way to handle it.

Cheers,
Kieren.
