Why would the high beams on a 1994 Thunderbird work when the low beams do not?

Headlights have two filaments; one for low beams and one for high beams. There is a good chance that the low beams are burnt out. This doesn't necessarily mean that the high beams won't work. However, it's not too common for both low beams to burn out at the same time. Of course, it could be a fluke. I would replace the headlights with new ones and then go from there.

Why would Headlights turn signals and interior lights not work but the high beams work only when you hold the high beam lever back what would cause this problem?

Try pushing the high beam lever forward. In some cars pulling this towards the driver only "flashes" the high beams, like for warning another driver. To make the high beams remain on usually requires the lever to be pushed forward. Either that or you have a defective switch in the turn lever that needs to be replaced.
