Dialing the 4400 (Parody of Adele’s song, Set Fire to the Rain)

4400_585x585

USA Network had it all, the hottest shows

And the summer rose, sizzled and burned.

It was the hottest line-up but over too soon

And we yearned for their return.

 

We dialed, we begged

But so many tv shows have tried

To stand in their shadow

Fighting to stay but falling in defeat.

 

But we still dialed their number

A return that would never be true, never be true.

All the characters wanted to stay

They would never return, never return

And then Resurrection came this way

And they fought to stay, fought to stay.

 

Chorus:

And we’re dialing The 4400

Alphas and Heroes fall from grace

Well, the line buzzed and beeped

Still it screams out your name, your name!

 

When the Arrow hits home

I could hear that line hum

Their lives come alive

Feel them here returned

Characters always remembered

Alive and finally home.

 

‘Cause there’s a side to us

Ordinary lives that aren’t true, aren’t true

All the things you do and say,

We are more than we ever dream, ever dream

And we live through you

You would always win, always win

 

Chorus:

And we’re dialing The 4400

Alphas and Heroes fall from grace

Well, the line buzzed and beeped

Still it screams out your name, your name!

 

We are dialing The 4400

To throw us into a world far from home

When the show fell, something died

‘Cause I knew such characters might not return a last time, a last time.

 

Sometimes I find comfort in the ordinary life

Spies burn and White Collar lies

Even now I am Covert

I can’t help myself looking for Suits.

 

Chorus:

And we’re dialing The 4400

Alphas and Heroes fall from grace

Well, the line buzzed and beeped

Still it screams out your name, your name!

 

We are dialing The 4400

To throw us into a world far from home

When the show fell, something died

‘Cause I knew such characters might not return one last time, one last time, ohhhh!

 

Oh noooo

Dialing The 4400, oh

Dialing The 4400

Dialing The 4400
