I agree with the others. This cannot be right.
Try describing it again in detail. For example, try not to say "The power is coming through 9 lights into the switch"
. It is impossible to tell what you mean by this. The power "going through" the lights would definitely require 14/3 cable.
Try to say something like "I have a 14/2 feed in the switch box. Then a 14/2 cable going from the switch box to the light.......etc...."
THAT we can understand.
