"One Hundred Stories" as written by and Daniel Michael Andriano Derek R Grant....
You're in the next room sleeping and I'm shouting out a song for you
I shouldn't wake you over the furnace, but I should swear to someone you'd have loved every note
So dream a good one tonight
I'll listen to the bad ones when they come
Get up in my ear 'till I hear every word
Every turn of your tongue, I will tighten my grip
No one could tell even if I fell 100 stories straight down, down, down
No one could tell even if I fell 100 stories down

I was getting bored with hurting myself
If you fall down enough, well soon enough, you will find hell
It can't be, as pretty as we hoped it would be
It's not even warm here, not even ten degrees

This bed is too big to sleep in, and I'm dying just to feel you breathe
You couldn't see across the ocean, but I was turning over 'till the vampires sleep
So dream a good one tonight
I'll listen to the bad ones when they come
Get up in my ear 'till I hear every word
Every turn of your tongue, I will tighten my grip
No one could tell even if I fell 100 stories straight down, down, down
No one could tell even if I fell 100 stories down

I was getting bored with hurting myself
If you fall down enough, well soon enough, you will find hell
It can't be as pretty as we hoped it would be
It's not even warm here, not even ten degrees

Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight

I was getting bored with hurting myself
So dream a good one tonight
I was getting bored with hurting myself
So dream a good one tonight
I was getting bored with hurting myself
So dream a good one tonight
I was getting bored with hurting myself

    General Commenta girl he cares a lot for is being hurt, and it's happening right in front of his face, but the only way he can explain to her how he feels without coming on too strong...so the only time he can tell her how he feels is when she's sleeping and the words hit her ears, but don't really listen (ie the references to the bed; "you're in the next room sleeping and I'm shouting out a song for you", "this bed is too big to sleep in, and I'm dying just to feel you breathe"). when he talks about being bored with hurt himself and finding hell, he's basically saying that he's waited too long to tell her how he feels, and he's in hell, and the only way to get out of it is to open up. but basically the bedroom and the dreaming is all metaphorical and in for interpretation "so dream a good one tonight, I'll listen to the bad ones when they come. get up in my ear till I hear every word." that basically is him saying that he only wants the best for her, but if she does fall into a rut, he'll be there regardless of the situation, and she doesn't have to worry about him leaving.
