Alec Benjamin - Must Have Been The Wind Lyrics




I heard glass shatter on the wall in the apartment above mine
At first I thought that I was dreamin'
But then I heard the voice of a girl and it sounded like she'd been cryin'
Now I'm too worried to be sleepin'

So I took the elevator to the second floor
Walked down the hall and then I knocked up on her door
She opened up and I asked about the things I've been hearing

She said, "I think your ears are playing tricks on you"
Sweater zipped up to her chin
"Thanks for caring, sir, that's nice of you
But I have to go back in
Wish I could tell you about the noise
But I didn't hear a thing"
She said, "It must have been the wind, must have been the wind
Must have been the wind, it must have been the wind"
She said, "It must have been the wind, must have been the wind
Must have been the wind, it must have been the wind"

So I was layin' on the floor of my room, cold concrete on my back
No, I just couldn't shake the feeling
I didn't want to intrude because I knew that I didn't have all the facts
But I couldn't bear the thought of leavin' her

So I took the elevator to the second floor
Walked down the hall and then I knocked up on her door
She opened up and I asked about the things I've been hearing

She said, "I think your ears are playing tricks on you"
Sweater zipped up to her chin
"Thanks for caring, sir, that's nice of you
But I have to go back in
Wish I could tell you about the noise
But I didn't hear a thing"
She said, "It must have been the wind, must have been the wind
Must have been the wind, it must have been the wind"
She said, "It must have been the wind, must have been the wind
Must have been the wind, it must have been the wind"

Aim my boom box at the roof, I'm playing "Lean On Me"
Just so that she knows that she can lean on me
And when she hears the words, I hope she knows she'll be okay
Aim my boom box at the roof, I'm playing "Lean On Me"
Just so that she knows that she can lean on me
And when she hears the words, I know exactly what I'll say

Promise I'm not playing tricks on you
You're always welcome to come in
You could stay here for an hour or two
If you ever need a friend
We can talk about the noise, when you're ready, but till then
I'll say, "It must have been the wind, must have been the wind
Must have been the wind, it must have been the wind"
I'll say, "It must have been the wind, must have been the wind
Must have been the wind, it must have been the wind"

  9. alisha warsi

    Alec just doesn't really write lyrics he writes stories which you can imagine in a song ❤️

  10. Pritesh Vishwakarma

    This song caught my attention in the first 30 seconds before i could switch to another, and it hooked me till the end. WoOw

  11. •xu ne•

    I kinda miss the time when he wasn’t that popular, but hey! It’s amazing how much people know him now because of his songs

  12. Brie

    Me, crying: So I haven't cried over a song in a while---

  13. slut-for-potatoes kunn

    I love how the girls is obviously in an abusive situation but Alec won't force her to leave. Though he'll be there when SHE'S ready to leave. he won't force her to do anything she's not ready to do. and that's absolutely beautiful. You can't make anyone leave an abusive relationship but you can be there for them when their ready to go.

  14. Ean Tan

  20. Paige Roarr

    I love that he writes about stories and things that matter. So beautiful. I wish him and Anson would do a duet together. So badly. They have such beautiful writers/signers.

  21. Velvet

    How much dust is he holding!? Love these, thankyoum also is it bad that im scared of the fact that alec benjamin can make somerhing suggested to be somerhing bad, so child-like? It horrifies me that he can, but it makes me feel so much better...... not that I feel bad or anything, but you understand., Right?

  22. Morrow master of wind

    Lyrics

    I heard glass shatter on the wall
    In the apartment above mine
    At first I thought that I was dreaming
    But then I heard the voice of a girl

    And it sounded like she'd been crying
    Now I'm too worried to sleeping
    So I took the elevator to the second floor
    Walked down the hall

    And then I knocked upon her door
    She opened up
    And I asked about the things I've been hearing
    She said

    “ I think your ears are playing tricks on you ”
    Sweater zipped up to her chin

    “ Thanks for caring sir that nice of you, ”
    “ But I have to go back in. ”
    “ Wish I could tell you about the noise, ”
    “ But I didn't hear a thing. ”
    She said “ it must have been the wind, ”

    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ It must have been the wind. ”
    She said “ it must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ It must have been the wind. ”

    So I was laying on the floor in my room
    Cold concrete on my back
    No, I just couldn't shake the feeling
    I didn't want to intrude

    Because I knew that I didn't have all the facts
    But I couldn't bear the thought of leaving her
    So, I took the elevator to the second floor
    Walked down the hall

    And then I knocked upon her door
    She opened up, and I asked about the things I've been hearing
    She said “ I think your ears are playing tricks on you. ”
    Sweater zipped up to her chin

    “ Thanks for caring sir that nice of you, ”
    “ But I have to go back in. ”
    “ Wish I could tell you about the noise, ”
    “ But I didn't hear a thing. ”

    She said “ it must have been the wind. ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ It must have been the wind. ”

    She said “ it must have been the wind. ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ It must have been the wind. ”

    Aim my boom box at the roof
    I'm playing lean on me
    Just so that she knows that she can lean on me
    And when she hears the words I hope she knows she'll be

    Okay
    Aim my boom box at the roof
    I'm playing lean on me
    Just so that she knows that she can lean on me

    And when she words I know exactly what I'll say
    “ Promise I'm not playing tricks on you. ”
    “ You're always welcome to come in. ”
    “ You can stay here for an hour or two, if you ever need a friend. ”

    “ We can talk about the noise when you're ready, ”

    But ’til then I'll say “ it must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ It must have been the wind. ”

    I'll say “ it must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ Must have been the wind, ”
    “ It must have been the wind. ”

  44. born to be mee

    this song is a perfect example that kindness is so much needed

  45. Mishi

    5:02 AM Las Vegas
    A couple above us has been shouting for last 21 minutes and they keep going. Boy is white, girl is clearly black(not being racist here)
    Oh okay the girl just started crying.
    Around 10 minutes ago there was a 3rd voice, a white lady.
    A good chunk of the conversation has been first black lady shouting "No" continuously.
    Then all of a sudden few objects falling on the ground and then boy shouting "No" again and again. This kept going until just few minutes ago the girl started to cry and things went quiet. I assume the "baam" sound was the boy slaming the door.

    Thanks for your attention.
    I have no idea what kind of drama is going on up there, but I was having a good time sleeping and now I wonder if they're okay.
    All this stuff reminded me of this song and I came here.
    Unfortunately I can not check on her since I'm 17 year old exchange student and I'm here with my host family. They have the keys to the hotel room and I would not be able to come back in if I left.
    So instead, I could not resist the urge of coming here and listen to this.
    I'm sorry girl above me.


    I would tell her that it will be okay,
    That she does not have to overthink,
    After that I guess we would sing:
    "It must have been the wind, it must've been the wind, it must've been the wind, it must've been the wind"...

  46. White girl

    Who's cutting onions?

  47. Jillian Hernandez

    Plot twist: The girl accidentally broke an antique or an important heirloom, so that's why she was crying. Then when Alec asked what the noise was, she was like, "OML this cute boy can't know I'm a clumsy chick." so she played it off.

  48. Tnsae Alemayehu
