This song brings back a lot of memories for me because it was on the radio all the time when I was a teenager. It’s a sad song about the end of a relationship.
It must have been love But it's over now
I think this is a good song to listen to to study must.
In this book, English Grammar In Use, it says: We use must to say that we feel sure something is true. For example: You’ve been travelling all day. You must be tired.
I think that’s a good example, it’s a pretty common thing to say: You must be tired. If you’re listening to what someone is saying and you’re trying to empathize with them, then mustis very useful.
That must be hard. That must have been really awkward. You must so relieved it’s over.
It says here for the past we use: must have done.
The phone rang but I didn’t hear it. I must have been asleep. I’ve lost one of my gloves. I must have dropped it somewhere.
Do you know the difference between: I lent it to Tom and I must have lent it to Tom. If you say: I lent it to Tom, then you are 100 percent sure and you have no doubt. If you say: I must have lent it to Tom, then you’re pretty sure, but maybe not 100% sure. Or you’ve just come to that conclusion.
If you think you need some practice, try writing something in the comments using must.
