Convert > Text file - Tag: Field Contents With Newlines

When tagging media files from a text file, how do I format newline characters within the text file for fields that are to contain multiple lines (such as long descriptions or lyrics)?

For example, for a file named Frère Jacques.mp3 that I would like to tag the unsyncedlyrics field with:

Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques
Dormez-vous, dormez-vous?
Sonnez le matines, sonnez le matines
Ding ding dong, ding ding dong

The intention would be to use a format string of %_filename_ext% \ %unsyncedlyrics% and the line in the text file to start:
Frère Jacques.mp3 \ fre||Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques
How would I continue this line within the text file to add a newline character followed by the second line of the lyrics?

The rule is simple: 1 line per record/file.
You would have to replace the CR/LF characters prior to import with preferably a unique printable character that does not equal the field separator and then restore the line breaks afterwards in MP3tag with an action.
E.g. you could replace the CR/LF with "==" like
Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques==Dormez-vous, dormez-vous?
and then create an action of the type "Replace with regular expression":
Search string: ==
Replace string: \r\n
