"No Ordinary Love (Sade cover)" as written by Stuart Matthewman and Helen Adu....
I gave you all the love I've got I gave you more than I could give
Gave you love
I gave you all that I had inside and you took my love
You took my love
Didn't I tell you?
What I believe
Did somebody say that?
A love like ours will last
Didn't I give you all that I got to
Give, Babe
I give you all the love I got I gave you more than I could give
I gave you love
I give you all that I had inside and you took my love
You took my love
I keep trying
I keep trying for you
There's nothing like
You and I
Baby
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
(Ordinary)
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
(Ordinary love)
When you came my way
You brightened every day
With your sweet smile
Ahh
Didn't I tell you
What I believe
Did somebody say that
Love like ours won't' last
Didn't I give you all that I got to
Give, baby
This is no ordinary love
Ordinary love
(Ordinary)
This is no ordinary love
Ordinary love
(Ordinary love)
I keep trying
I keep trying
I keep trying for you
There's nothing like
You and I
Baby
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
This is no ordinary love
Ordinary love
Keep crying for you
Keep trying for you
Keep crying for you

    General Commentthis song was amazing when sade first did it. but the deftones truly make you feel what the song is really about and is saying. this is honestly one of the best cover songs i have ever heard.

    General Commenti heard this song such a long time ago.....i still listen to it sometimes...i love the "didnt i tell you what i believe? did somebody say that....a love like ours wont last" HIM should have covered this song too....sounds like something they would do.

    General Commenti love this song, this is how i feel about my girlfriend. i think its really cool that they covered a sade song. chino's vocals are awesome, i seriously think that he should do a duet with sade. i love how the deftones made this song more atmospheric. oh yes jonah from the band far also adds vocals in this song.

    General CommentWow, this song was lovely when Sade made it, but this Deftones cover blew me away. It's so amazingly beautiful...I have to agree with 4:20chick4eva!...The Deftones really made me feel the song...Chino sounded so great...Ahhh...Whoa. This is an AWESOME cover.

    General CommentI don't think that I've ever heard such a good cover. I have to say there are only enough GOOD covers to count on one of my hands, and this is definately one of them. Jonah and Chino's voices blend together beautifully, and I think Sade should be impressed...beautiful, heartfelt song, I love it. Rock on, farewell! *FSQ*

    General CommentSade does this song good... but Deftones do it GREAT. My mom refuses to listen to it, though... she's a big Sade fan.

    General CommentJonah Matrana from FAR/ONELINEDRAWING/NEW END ORIGINAL actually sings most of the song. but was given no credit for it by maverick records. they recorded it in Chino's garage. and yes it is a damn good cover.
