I have an old house with two lead wire. A bathroom with no outlet I want to add one. There is a light and light switch. How can I add the outlet with out running new wire? Or can I? Also I want the outlet to have power constantly.

By code you can not extend an ungrounded circuit, so you can't add a receptacle. Additionally there may not be a neutral in the switch box.
