Interior Lighting Help!

hey guys,
So, yesterday i decided to fix my sagging headliner that gravity ruined. Went to Jo-ann fabrics, felt so odd to go in there, but got a some nice felt and heavy duty loctite adhesive. Started working on pulling the old headliner out, worked from rear to front to unbolt and pop things off. Once i got to my driver side visor i found a wiring harness that i COULD NOT disconnect. I figured i dont care for the lights to the mirror anyways and took the lazy way out and just cut the wires with cable cutters. and BOOM all my interior looks went out. i figured once im done and reconnect the wires the problem would be fixed but NO i was wrong.

So, my question is:
Is there any way i could fix this problem???

Any help would be awesome!

Thanks!

Let me get this right. You felt Jo-ann and pulled your headliner then you couldn't disconnect your wire so you cut it? If that was me, I would of blown a fuse. So you might want to check that.
