When it does go where you want it to, is it starting to the left and curving back to the point you were aiming at? Are most/all of your misses to the right big slices?
If you are coming over the top, your club is traveling on a line that points diagonally out to the left of your target. When the club face is square to that line, you would hit a pull - a shot that goes left but does not curve. When the club face is open to that line, but closed to the target you're aiming at, your shot would start to the left and curve back to the right and end up near where you aimed. If your clubface was square to the target and drastically open to the line it's traveling down, you'd hit a big slice.
The real fix is to stop coming over the top, but the variation in the shots simply has to do with inconsistency in being able to deliver the club face square.
