Question: tail lights work, brake lights don't

2000 Hyundai Elantra GLS. Car has over 250000
miles and still going. It is a manual transmission.
I am having problems with the lighting.
When i turn the lights on, the headlights work, the tail lights work, and the lights on the spoiler work.
When I apply the brakes while driving, the brake lights don't illuminate.
Also, when i shut the car off and turn the lights off, I can put my foot on the brake and the lights on
bell will go off.
