I think we do play in the same game. A story made with words is 
basically creating a timeline of pictures by describing what happened in 
words (the meaning doesn't create a story, it helps to understand, at 
its best).
A musical story can create a timeline of feelings, which I would call a 
story as well. It could also create pictures by association which tells 
a story. This story might be very different between listeners, and might 
also be different for the musician.
It seems a story made out of words is fixed and everybody perceives the 
same story, but that is a complete illusion if you think about it...
Simply listen to the classics of musical story telling like Smetanas 
Vltava... I think its pretty evidently story telling...
