Your attachment(s) got stripped off, but I think I know what the issue
is, since I've faced it myself.

When you introduce polyphony via the << { c4( b c2) } \\ { a2( g4 a) }
>> method (just to give a simple example), two new voices (named "1" and
"2") are created.  Therefore lyrics attached to the voice outside the
double-angle-brackets won't bind to the notes inside the polyphonic
section.  The solution is to specifically name one of the polyphonic
voices to the same name as the voice outside the polyphonic sections:

<< { \context Voice = sopranoVoice c4( b c2) } \\ { a2( g4 a) } >>

So, if the non-polyphonic section is in Voice sopranoVoice, you can
continue to bind lyrics to the notes within the polyphony, since the
upper voice remains in the same context.
