Sounds like the battery needs replacing. The alternator should be checked to see if it is charging also.

There could be enough juice for the lights, but not enough cranking amperage in the battery to turn the motor over. Also it sound like the battery is not taking a charge. It may be shorted. You can take it out and have it tested.
