If there is a neutral there, simply connect
the new fixture's neutral to it, and the new fixture's hot to the switched side of the switch (using a pigtail, never double up
under one screw).

If the switch is an end of run, you must wire
into where there is a neutral and a switchleg, such as the other fixture, or
you must run a 14/3 (or 12/3 if original is #12) between the switch and where the original 2 wire cable went.
