Look at my diagram, one cable from the power cord will connect to one cable on the light socket, the other wire on the light socket will connect to one wire on the switch, the other wire on the switch will connect to the other free wire on the power cord.
You are creating one big circle with the cables, no cables should be free or have more then 1 other connection to them.
Think of just hooking the light socket up to the power cable, pretty simple right? Each has two cables and each cable is connected to its color match, all we are doing with the switch is adding it in between one of the pairs of cables to stop the flow of electricity when we want.
If you get a third wire in the power cord then just ignore it, its just a ground cable, with this small of a project its unneeded (most the time this third cable is green)
And if your really having a bad time understanding all of this, ask one of your friends that works on cars to help you, they know simple wiring.
