There was no road

I did not know the way to go
It seemed my mind had overflowed
You showed me what I had to know
Before we met there was no road
    When I was lost without a hope
    And bowed beneath a heavy load
    You gifted me the way to cope
    Before we met there was no road
At last I travel through the land
To try to pay the debts I’ve owed
With words that I now understand
Before we met there was no road
    I did not know the way to go
    Before we met there was no road
