Bathroom Wiring Help

Looking for some help on how to complete the following:

I have wire from panel ran to GFI outlet, from there it goes to a ligth and then down to a single pole switch. I want to add 2 more lights to that switch. When I finished the bathroom I ran an extra wire into the box in case i needed it down the road, it is capped off at the switch and ran into my storage area which is where I want to add the new ligths. The extra wire is not tied to anything right now. What is the best way to complete this?

Hope this makes sense

Run a new cable to the light existing fixture and connect into the two wires that are connected to the current fixture. Unless you ran a three + ground cable to the light switch from the fixture you do not have a neutral and can not connect your new light to the cable you ran previously.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.

Thanks, was afraid that was the case that I should have ran a 3+. I can't get to the existing light as it's in a drywall ceiling without a bigger project than I want.
