I’m not an electrician but I have done more than my share of home wiring. You need to tread carefully here so you don’t make any errors which could go against your local electrical code.
Do you mean a 2-gang setup or one unit that has two switches built in? Also, does the box have additional wires coming in/out to carry the supply elsewhere in the house (not just the lights)? All of this has an impact on how the wiring should be done.
-However, in a nutshell, it sounds as if the wring is setup such that the hot for the outdoor light comes from the switched condition of the indoor light. Unless there is/was a specific reason to do this, it seems highly unusual. Check out this Google page that shows various images and videos, they should help out. If you’re unsure, contact an electrician. Hopefully there’s one in this forum who can give you a more authoritative answer.
