Superuser Contribution For new lyrics feature, add a button that can resync the lyrics to the music if one scrolls ahead.

If I scroll in the lyrics, say to look at the next verse, the lyrics no longer scroll with the song. I need to close the lyrics and reopen them. It would be nice to have a button to turn the text snap back on.
