Using Cubase and Word Simultaneously?

I want to compose lyrics in Word/ Notepad while I play the track I have written in Cubase. However, when I click on a loaded Word document (or anywhere outside of Cubase), Cubase stops playing the track and freezes. When I say ‘freeze’, I don’t mean that it malfunctions - it’s clearly an intentional design feature.

How do I disable this feature so I can listen to the track I have written in Cubase while composing lyrics in Word/ Notepad?

Many thanks.
