Connecting a second light to a switch

I just connected the black wire to the bundle of black wires and the white wire to the bundle of white wires. The first light still works correctly but the second light stays on all of the time. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help.
Yeah you confused me there...so did you run a new wire to the switch? All you need is to run a wire from the first light to the new one. Connect the colors together.
