It sounds like you're encountering the lyric-phrasing-engraver. This is intended to automatically adjust the alignment of lyrics of songs with multiple stanzas. It makes the first syllable of a phrase left aligned, and the last right aligned, detecting phrases by punctuation. If you don't want this, set the property Score.automaticPhrasing to false.

Hope this helps.
