Chris, it's a single from the mid 1980's with Jon Anderson on vocals, this being their second collaboration. I really like it.

I prefer the beautiful "From High Places" that was on Crises
Between these, I have to go with Sheba, slightly edging out "Five Miles Out"

Chris, have you heard "Pictures in The Dark"?  It was a single only release from the mid 80s, dynamite song!

Anything with Roger Chapman on it is going to be good.

I'm a big fan of Sheba myself, especially after seeing live versions of it. So beautiful.

Five Miles Out

When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.

I have fond memories of Sheba from summer 1981 in Ottawa, where it was all over the great local FM station.  While his singles from the subsequent two albums were both hits in England, they were not popular in Montreal but were big hits in Ottawa, an indication of the power of FM radio back in the day.  Montreal's station had gone hard rock and Ottawa's was still more nuanced.
