lie/lay down/on

November 2021

I still don't understand the difference between the verb lie down and lay down. Very confusing.

I saw some examples below, still, feel confused.

Is it okay to use the word "lie" to replace them?

Thank you!!!

Lay on that couch right now! I’m gonna take my shoes off.

A: Real-life therapy couch. I’m not actually supposed to lay down, right?

B: Whatever makes you feel comfortable.
