Strophes is a new lyrics app for Mac OS X Lion. It costs US$4.99 and is available exclusively through Apple’s Mac App Store in the Music category.

Strophes automatically downloads and displays the lyrics of the songs you’re listening to. It’s compatible with iTunes, Spotify, Rdio and Radium.

Users can do a search for lyrics by title, artist, and even words when they’re not listening to a song. Strophes also integrates the ability to read artist biographies.
