So Gone
Monica Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

So gone over you, you you you
Yeah, lil Monica, woo

Silly of me (uh huh), devoted so much time
To find you unfaithful boy
I nearly lost my mind (woo)
Drive past your house every night (uh)
In an unmarked car (uh huh)
Wonderin' what she had on me (uh) to make you break my heart (come on)

You make me feel (yeah) (uh huh)
I'm so gone
So unreal
You make me feel(uh huh)
You make me feel
Whoa and I love to love you baby (uh)
So unreal (ooh)

Nights I couldn't sleep, uh
You let the sun beat you home (uh huh)
I ask myself over again
What am I doing wrong (woo)
To make you stay out all night (uh huh) and not think to call (uh)
What does she have over me (uh huh)
To make you not think to call home?

You make me feel
You make me feel I'm so gone (woo) (uh huh)
So unreal
You make me feel
You make me feel
Whoa and I love to love you baby (woo)
So unreal (ooh)

Listen boy I'ma rowdy chick
Sometimes I have to fight 'cause my mouth too slick
Baby why you doin' me like I ain't worth shit
Make me wanna ride past your house and sit
Kick down your doors and smack your chick
Just to show you Monica not havin' that (uh huh)
So in love with you like a drug habit get
So unreal
You treat me so unreal (unreal)

What she do I do I do better (uh huh)
What she do to make you love her? (uh huh)
(What did she do)
Is it real or forever? (uh huh)
Oh (is it real)?
Baby please can we stay together? (come on)

What she do I do I do better (uh huh)
What she do to make you love her? (oh)
Is it real or forever?
Oh (is it real)?
Baby please can we stay together? (woo)

Whoa and I love to love you baby
Whoa and I love to love you baby
Whoa and I love to love you baby, ooh
Whoa and I love to love you baby
Whoa and I love to love you baby
Whoa and I love to love you baby
Just to show you Monica not havin' it

You make me feel (yeah)
You make me feel I'm so gone
So unreal (oh)
You make me feel
You make me feel
Whoa and I love to love you baby
So unreal (ooh)

Said that I need you
I don't really need you
Said that I need you, ooh
Said that I need you
I don't really need you
Said that I need you
You treat me so unreal

This song reminds of my first trip to LA went to meet my college sweetheart when she was coming back from Australia
This song played on every station

Reminds me of riding the pacific coast highway when the sun was going down
What a experience

Hanging out at the Santa Monica piers


Good times. Good times
