Connecting ballast which wires to where

So I have to connect this electronic ballast to this 4 pin socket

<img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-TabrR1JQiwA/WCxSVyK1SUI/AAAAAAAAHD8/OthCJSkCDe0/s1024-no/IMG_3985.JPG" width="1024" height="768"/>

There are two pairs of wires coming out of the "lamp side" of the ballast does each pair go to one side of the base or do need to be crossed with one from each pair to each side:

The diagram on the ballad shows that each pair would go to one side of a tube but not sure how that equates to the compact base

Those 4 pin bulbs are two separate bulbs in one. You can see which two pins go to each half.

The pink is one side with its two pins and the blue is the other side with its two pins.
