About Early Winter

"Early Winter" is a song by American singer Gwen Stefani from her second solo studio album, The Sweet Escape (2006). Written by Stefani and English pianist Tim Rice-Oxley, the song was released in Europe as the album's fifth and final single on January 18, 2008, by Interscope Records. Musically, "Early Winter" is a soft rock and synth-pop ballad with new wave influences. Critics found it similar to songs by English alternative rock band Keane, of which Rice-Oxley is a member. The lyrics of the song describe the nearing of the end of a relationship, and were speculated to be references to Stefani's own relationship with husband Gavin Rossdale. Upon its release, "Early Winter" received generally positive reviews from music critics, many of whom commended Stefani's vocal delivery and the song's emotional appeal. The song attained moderate commercial success across Europe, reaching number six in Germany and Slovakia, number 12 in Switzerland, and number 14 in Finland. An accompanying music video for "Early Winter" was directed by Sophie Muller and was filmed in destinations like Budapest, Milan, and Prague. It contains scenes of Stefani in a palace-like hall in various gowns and at railway stations. "Early Winter" was included in the setlist of The Sweet Escape Tour, and the performances featured a special coda section delivered by American musician and bassist Gail Ann Dorsey.

You, you know how to get me so low
My heart had a crash when we spoke
I can't fix what you broke
And you, you always have a reason
Again and again this feelin'
Why do I give in?

And I always was, always was one for cryin'
I always was one for tears

The sun's getting cold; it's snowin'
Looks like an early winter
For us
Looks like an early winter
For us
An early winter
Oh, I need you to turn me over

It's said the map of the world is on you
The moon gravitates around you
The seasons escape you

And I always was, always was one for cryin'
I always was one for tears
No, I never was, I never was one for lyin'
You lied to me all these years

The sun's getting cold; it's snowin'
Looks like an early winter
For us
Looks like an early winter
For us
An early winter
Oh, I need you to turn me over

Why? Why do you act so stupid?
Why? You know that I'm always right

It looks like an early winter
For us
It hurts, and I can't remember sunlight
An early winter
For us
The leaves are changing color
For us
(It gets too much, it gets so much)
Starting over and over, and over again
(It gets too much, it gets so much)
Starting over and over, and over again
(It gets too much, it gets so much)
Well, it looks like an early winter
For us
(It gets too much, it gets so much)
It looks like an early winter
For us
