Lyrics

So Into You

Written By: Thulani

SO INTO YOU

(Hook): Boy you really, really tried
You made it worth my while
You see there’s more to me
Cause I’ Im into you so into you
I’m about to lose control
I’m ready to let go
Cause all the things you do for me
I’m into you so into you

Chorus: Sometimes I get so crazy
At times it gets so hazy
With all the things I’ve been through
It’s hard to see whats true
You say that I’m evasive
But try to be persuasive
Deep down in my heart you know that
I’m into you so into you

1st Verse: I can’t get you off my mind
I keep thinking about you just bout all the time
How you look when you smile
& its taking me a while
to really let you know how I cant you go (yeah)

(Hook): Boy you really, really tried
You really made it worth my while
there’s no denying that
You see that there’s much more to me
Cause’ I’m into you so into you
I’m about to lose control
You know I’m ready to let go
& I’m pretty sure that the little things you do for me
Cause I .. I’m into you so into you

2nd Verse: I’ve been down that road before (yeah)
Promised myself won’t let a man hurt me no more
Your not like the others I see
& discovered just how its gonna be yeah ( Harmony)

Bridge: Hey//// Hey Yeah (Harmony)
I want your love inside me right now hey (Harmony)

Interlude: You got me drawn like a moth to a flame
Situations crazy driving me insane
Even though I’m trying to be kool
I’m fallin in love with you
Theres no fakin’ no mistaken, the way I feel, whats the deal,
Am I dreamin got me feenin’ wanna really tell you how I feel….

(Hook ad lib) Boy you really, really tried
You really made it worth my while
there’s no denying that
You see that there’s much more to me
Cause’ I’m into you so into you
I’m about to lose control
You know I’m ready to let go
& I’m pretty sure that the little things you do for me
Cause I .. I’m into you so into you
