Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Sounds like an intermittent Earth connection. Check all the battery earth leads where they connect to the Battery, Engine and Body. If possible, disconnect, clean and reconnect.

Tips for a great answer:
Probably your battery is dead,enough for the lights or your alternator is bad which is what keeps the battery charged. Or your car is out of petrol.
Try to start the car with the lights on...if the lights go dead when you turn the key then the battery has low voltage. Try jump starting the car.
if the lights stay bright and you hear click, the starter is bad. Try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times. If the car turns over, then get at starter. -
