I can’t find the feature to automatically download lyrics

TunesArt is using a lot of RAM

The RAM usage depends on the size of your iTunes Library. So, if you’ve got more than 5000 tracks, and you don’t use the search feature, you should consider disabling this feature in Preferences window (‘Advanced’ tab). This will free up some megabytes.
