# Lilypond Lyrics Alignment - Align to first syllable

Hello I am a new Lilypond user. I have a question about alignment of lyrics. Let say I have a word, with two parts (syllable) A and B. I want the syllable A align (center) to a note, but not the whole word AB. The remaining syllables B should following A, but not aligning to the next note. Is there any tweak to do this? Thanks.

{ a1 b4 c'8 b a2 a1 \bar "|." }
