Yes
Don't Kill the Whale (1978)
(Jon Anderson/Chris Squire)

From: "Tormato"

A strange and beautiful recording. 

There is one thing I'm not quite sure of: The F#m in the verses might as 
well be a major chord - Anderson, at least, sometimes sings something 
sounding like the major third. Something in the instrumental track, on 
the other hand, suggests a minor third without really coming forward with 
it. With the absence of the lead vocals in both instrumental verses the 
F# seems to be more minor than major. Any ideas? Comments highly welcome!

Hi,

in my opinion it's F#m followed by F#7, like this:
F#m F#7
"..gonna lose our touch"
