I bet you didn't see this side of me coming...?
No nor me...
I shocked myself by telling the truth...
I was beginning to think that I would never move...
thought I was becoming stood in time, so predictably so...
Laying down while you come & go...
Walking all over me like some yoyo...
So predictable, yeah that's me...
It's not one of my strong suits my predictability...
In fact, it lets me down constantly...
It's good to know where you stand, on that you'll always know I'm standing beside you, standing my ground...
Unpredictable yeah, I like the sound of that...
But I too like the thought of being comfortably around...
Predictive isn't always good for me...
See some people know exactly what to do...
If they feel shitty & want to row with me... 
I'm Misses predictable for sure, I'm people's excuse if they want war...
Unpredictable I'd sometimes like to be, not always do what's expected of me...
And try as I may do things the other way, it doesn't take long for little miss predictable to come along...
I'm like Ron-seal, I do exactly what it says on the tin... & has much has I love the person within... 
I've got to learn another way...
& do the opposite of what people think & say...
If I could find the balance between the two, that maybe I think will do...
I might just stay calm for an extra minute or two...
If I could be Unpredictable too... 
But poke the bear either way that is a sure thing too...
The prediction is any who... It is more me than you...
That's why you knew exactly what to do...
I like to see the faces of those that I carried through when little miss Unpredictable turned the tables on you...
I'd like to see my face too little miss predictably followed though with unpredictable, Who knew...
