Help with receptacle wiring

i have a light switch. Turn it on, overhead lights go on. There is an AC outlet wired to it. It ONLY works if the switch is off. Two wires only to both switch (for overhead lights) and the AC outlet. Can i change something to get the ac outlet permanently on? Thx!

Welcome to the forums! You have a "through" wire on the switched side. What did you do to the wiring? Can you post a picture of the switch pulled from the box showing the wiring at the switch and inside the box. Power off, for sure.
