Help!!! Switching from h7 to h4 headlight

Ok I feel like a total boob. Ok I am in the middle of a naked conversion and got my new headlight mounted up. I have seen several others (unfortunately no longer active), switch to an h4 headlight. How the hell do you wire it up...???? I have a single pole dual throw relay, found a diagram online on how to wire it up but nothing........what am I missing? Please if anyone has some advice, I am all ears.

Ok. What confused me was that the oem light has low beam on all the time, then when high been turns on, the low beam stays on. Since I'm moving to a single bulb, shouldn't I have the low beam turn off when the high turns on? Thus the need for the new relay?

So you do need a 5 prong relay, to have only one beam on at a time, as illustrated here:
