Inaccurate Lyrics (needs a better database)

The actual operaion so far seems fine. I wanted to use it to actually download the lyrics for offline use on the iPhone but now I'm not bothering because the lyrics found on my test song are wrong (run around instead of run aground). The point of having lyrics is to find out what the artist is singing when you can't make it out. They pretty much need to be authoratative or don't bother (or have a flag for those that are user added and not checked by anybody). Great that it's opensource and on github - maybe I'll learn how to point it to a better database and then I'd give it 5 stars.


Needs more Help options

I'm not a programmer and "git" does not help with some instructions. Most of the lyrics are in Chinese or don't translate correctly. No idea how to set the "offset", I can't seem to delete the characters to show only the English lyrics. What alternative saving path is available? What is the lyrics filter and how does it work? I have to set up the Preferences every time that I load Music. iTunes doesn't seem to save the set and LyricsX has no source (that I can find) to save the selections you make. So, the settings have to be saved each time you open the app, even if it is set to open when iTunes Music opens. I like the app, but there are too many things that are not explained and no instructions seem to exist, unless you want to "git" and I don't know how to git.

Thanks for this awesome app! Works great >90% of the time. Some times the lyrics are a little off but usually not by much. I only have one request: please fix the auto write to iTunes feature. Patch notes say this has been fixed, but still doesn't work for me. Perhaps bc of the upgrade to MacOS Catalina?

Edit: the auto-write seems to be fixed! Here's your 5th star - this app is the total package.
