You have a dead or very nearly dead battery. That is the solonoid clicking that you hear. Your tired battery has enough juice to handle the lights for a bit but not the 200 plus amps necessary for the starter.
Have someone charge and test the old battery then replace it if it fails. Go to Costco and but a Ultima Red Top battery for $99, great deal.
Good luck,
Mike J.
