Creating underscores in lyrics without holding text
Is there a way to create an underscore in the lyrics as if a note was being held, even if there is no "note" before it? This is particularly with regards to repeats and multiple verses. In the screenshot attached, you can see that I'm able to hold the text through into [C] because of the word "rain", but I can't technically add a underscore for the 2nd verse, because its "tied" note is the one at the end of the 1st ending.
I've tried making throwaway text as a verse 2 underneath "rain" and making that invisible, but that makes the underscore on the next line invisible too. I also tried to use text underscores, but there's a clear distinction between each character that makes it different from the smooth underscores normally in lyrics.
Any thoughts on any way I can manipulate this to make it work? Or, any special characters I could add in a text box and move it into the right spot so that it looks correct? Thanks!
