you don't need a seperate power, and a seperate ground, just make sure the ground off of one isn't the power off the other (i think we are on the same page, just clairifying)

so if you have 1 power wire, make sure it splits and it goes to the lights equally, then the grounds can come from each wire back to a single ground...

i'll draw pictures, hang on
