MusicBrianz lyric database?

So, as I’m sure, everyone already knows about how MetaBrainz and the Internet Archive work together for the Cover Art Archive, which is great, however, I was wondering if something similar could be done for lyrics of music, as actually finding a good source of lyrics on the internet is far from easy.

I understand there’s a bit of a legal issue here with reprinting of lyrics, but are there any other issues that could prevent such a thing?

aiui the legal issue is with lyrics being copyrighted artistic product.
So displaying them on a screen without permission of the copyright holder would be a breach of copyright.

Just the legal side of it from what I gather. They used to use Lyric Wiki before it got ousted by Fandom (who own wikia) probably due to legal issues.

Kinda butts really
