ALEXANDER STEWART If You Only Knew | The catharsis of sharing your personal story

The new Canadian Pop star Alexander Stewart has just released his EP ‘If You Only Knew’. An album that captures the most vulnerable moments of his life, as with the smash hit ‘I wish you cheated‘.

Who is Alexander Stewart?

Alexander is a musician born in Toronto in 1999 who has garnered over 6 million followers on TikTok 📱 and 2.5 on YouTube since opening his channel as a teenager.

The first time Alexander sang he was only 4 years old. His father, who runs a recording studio, told him to sing some harmonies, thus beginning his bond with music.

  • The first CD he bought was Lady Gaga’s “The Fame”.
  • He was also in the choir, learning guitar and piano.

The boom would come when his father produced a cover of Havana by Camila Cabello, becoming his first viral video on social networks.

  • In 2018 he would release his first single of his own, ‘Enamorado (In love)‘.

Alexander would continue to release single songs until in 2021 he would release his EP, ‘Aftermath‘, followed in 2022 by the hit single ‘echo’, and his most popular track to date, ‘blame’s on me’, about a broken relationship in which he was at fault.

In 2023 he would have the honor of opening for Charlie Puth while releasing several more singles: Leave me in the dark, I’m trying, Birthday cake (ft. Dylan Conrique); concluding the year with another great EP, ‘If You Only Knew‘.

Alexander Stewart blame’s on me

Writing these songs was the most beautiful and heartbreaking process i think i’ve been through. I’ve poured so much emotion into this EP, and it captures so many vulnerable moments from my life, with ‘if you only knew’ being one of the heaviest. as a songwriter, it’s really cathartic to be able to share this story, and my only hope is that it helps people who might be struggling in their own ways. thank you for being part of this journey with me. 💚

Alexander Stewart 'I Wish You Cheated' Lyrics

I’m anxious, kinda sad
Hard to be your best when you lost the best you had
Spending days just on my phone
Wondering where it all went wrong
I’m nervous, pretty wired
I said your name too much now my lungs got tired
Thinking maybe I’m to blame
I just need someone to hate

Oh-oh-oh, you made this so damn hard for me
You and your goddamn honesty
It got me thinking

I wish you would’ve cheated
And smashed my heart to pieces
I wish I had a reason I could hate your guts for leaving
I wish you were the villain
A psycho with no feelings
So how do I move on
When you did nothing wrong? (Ah-ah-ah)
Wish you did something wrong (ah-ah-ah)
But you did nothing wrong

I know it’s messed up, kinda bad
But I wish we didn’t talk, and you just left like that
I’d be angry instead of numb
Dammit, who have I become?

Oh-oh-oh, you made this so damn hard for me
You and your goddamn honesty
It got me thinking

I wish you woulda cheated
And smashed my heart to pieces
I wish I had a reason I could hate your guts for leaving
I wish you were the villain
A psycho with no feelings
So how do I move on
When you did nothing wrong? (Ah-ah-ah)
Wish you did something wrong (ah-ah-ah)
But you did nothing wrong

In the middle of the night
I start to fantasise that you would ruin my whole life, oh
‘Cause you’re the best I had
And I keep running back like a goddamn fool, tryna change your mind
You were all mine
Can’t believe I

Wish you woulda cheated
And smashed my heart to pieces
I wish I had a reason I could hate your guts for leaving
I wish you were the villain
A psycho with no feelings
So how do I move on
When you did nothing wrong?

Alexander Stewart 'I Wish You Cheated' Lyrics in Spanish

Estoy ansioso, un poco triste
Difícil ser lo mejor cuando has perdido lo mejor que tenías
Pasando días sólo en mi teléfono
Preguntandome cómo fue todo mal
Estoy nervioso, bastante excitado
Dije tu nombre demasiado ahora mis pulmones se cansaron
Pensando que tal vez yo tengo la culpa
Solo necesito a alguien a quien odiar

Oh-oh-oh, me lo has puesto tan difícil
Tú y tu maldita honestidad
Me hizo pensar

Ojalá me hubieras engañado
Y roto mi corazón en pedazos
Desearía tener una razón para odiarte por irte.
Desearía que fueras el villano
Una psicópata sin sentimientos
Entonces, ¿cómo puedo seguir adelante
Cuando no hiciste nada malo (Ah-ah-ah)
Desearía que hubieras hecho algo mal (ah-ah-ah)
Pero no hiciste nada malo

Sé que es un lío, uno malo
Pero me gustaría que no hubieramos hablado, y que te huebieras ido de esa forma
Yo estaría enojado en lugar de entumecido
Maldita sea, ¿en quién me he convertido?

Oh-oh-oh, me lo has puesto muy difícil.
Tú y tu maldita honestidad.
Me hizo pensar

Ojalá me hubieras engañado
Y roto mi corazón en pedazos
Desearía tener una razón para odiarte por irte.
Desearía que fueras el villano
Una psicópata sin sentimientos
Entonces, ¿cómo puedo seguir adelante
Cuando no hiciste nada malo (Ah-ah-ah)
Desearía que hubieras hecho algo mal (ah-ah-ah)
Pero no hiciste nada malo

En medio de la noche
Empiezo a fantasear que arruinarías toda mi vida, oh
Porque eres lo mejor que tuve
Y sigo corriendo hacia atrás como un maldito tonto, tratando de cambiar de opinión
Eras toda mía
No puedo creerlo

Ojalá me hubieras engañado
Y roto mi corazón en pedazos
Desearía tener una razón para odiarte por irte
Desearía que fueras el villano
Una psicópata sin sentimientos
Entonces, ¿cómo puedo seguir adelante
Cuando no hiciste nada malo
