"Let God In" Video

I recently was interviewd for Radio Chavura - a Denver-based radio program.  Our interview was also digitally recorded.  Here is a link to me singing my song, "Let God In."
Here are the lyrics:

LET GOD IN  (Meditation on n’eilah). 
Words and music - Rabbi Joe Black

 (El norah alilah - 3x
Ham'tze lanu m'chilah
bish'at ha-neilah)
(Awesome God, on high
grant us pardon during this hour of neilah.)

There's a hole in the sky growing bigger every day
And it looks like an eye gazing sadly down our way.
Try to ignore it, but it just won't go away
Tears falling down like the acid rain
There's a hole deep inside of so many here today
Try to ignore it but it just won't go away
So we fill it up with our moneys and desires
Measuring our worth with what we can acquire
But the only way to patch it is to catch it from within....
Where is God?    Whenever we let God in.

You can't find God in the classroom
Or a book that you take from a shelf.
You can't find God on a mountain top,
You can only find God in yourself.
There's nowhere to look and no place to find
If your final destination is your peace of mind.
It's not a matter of place, it's time -
You've got to change the "where" to "when."
Where is God?  Whenever we let God in.
