"Early Winter" is an 1980s inspired pop rock ballad written by Tim Rice-Oxley (pianist for British band Keane) for Gwen Stefani's second album The Sweet Escape (2006). The song received positive reviews from music critics, and its opening riffs were used in a Hewlett-Packard commercial featuring Stefani. It was released as the album's fifth and final single in several European countries.
You, you know how to get me so low
My heart had a crash when we spoke
I cant fix what you broke
