advice on mixes (!)

hello, i need some advice on these songs of mine (particularly the mixing side of things).

so, heres the thing: i mix on pre-recorded/already mixed instrumentals that i download. sometimes i can make it sound like the vocal is "in" the beat per say, and not just on top of the beat like this: I know its not perfect but it sounds decent and sounds like the vocal is mixed well into the instrumental.
but i cant do that everytime, namely in these two songs:

it sounds awful and i dont know what to do. i know im not a great singer whatsoever, but tbh i dont really care about that. i just want it to sound better overall. on those 2 songs it just sounds like im on top of the beat and not "inside it", like i said earlier. i also know theres a lot of information/threads on how to mix on pre-recorded instrumentals but its all kinda scattered and hard to pin down, so thats why i thought i would make a more particular thread on these songs.

any help is appreciated and thanks in advance
