If you don't see time-synced lyrics appear when you select the Lyrics option, then sadly time-synced lyrics aren't available for that particular song. Select another song to play and try again.

You can also see the full lyrics for a song when it's playing by pressing the Menu/Back button on your ‌Apple TV‌ Remote, selecting the More option (the ellipsis icon), then choosing View Full Lyrics.
