need headlight installation help!!

I am turning a fifteen minute job into an all day swear marathon. I can't get the socket screwed back on to the lens cover. I'm pushing it in an turning it clockwise. I have the entire headlight lens off and still can't get it. What am I doing wrong? It looks like the clip that holds the headlight into the socket don't give the socket enough room to swivel onto the lens. Thanks and go ahead and laugh.

Yes I have the new bulb in the socket but I can't get the socket into the lens cover. I wore out my thumbs today pushing it down and trying to twist it in. Something is wrong but I can't figure out what it is.
