please can I say "I am without water" to mean that I am out of it?
there is a song by U2 that says "with or without you". can I say I am "out of you"?

I wonder if I can say "I am really into you" meaning "I really like you" and similarly "I am out of you" meaning "I am not in love with you any more."?
Or does "to be into" work only for things?
I'm really into you is a colloquialism, but I don't think I have ever come across someone saying I am out of you
Anglika is right that it's certainly not idiomatic but someone might use it/might have used it sometime as an interesting turn of phrase.
Wife: We're out of milk.
Husband: I'm out of you. We haven't done an us only for far too long.
Wife: Awwww honey, that's so sweet. Forget the milk. Let's go out to dinner and dance dance dance. Theeeeeennnnnnn ... .

I thought that ''to be out of something'' meant the same of ''not having any of that thing''?
what's the slight difference, please?
I am out of money
I don't have money
I am out of sugar
I don't have sugar
I am running out of water
I am about to not to have water
Out of implies that you ran out; e.g., of money, sugar, water, etc; that you had it but spent or used it all. The result is that you don't have any more.
I am about to run out of/not have any water.
