Default Can I patch tail lights into head lights?

My lighting wiring is still melted, near the switch. I thought of the easiest way to deal with it now, is to patch wires from the headlights, to the tail lights. This way, the tail lights should come on when I turn on the headlamps. Will the headlight circuit be able to handle lighting the two tail lights as well?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I wouldn't recommend it - lights can use a decent amount of power, and you could just end up with more melted wires, or worse a fire. Fix it right by removing the damaged portion of wiring and connecting or splicing in good. Don't try to rig something up.
