Other questions about "Lay"

Q: Why it’s “ lay down”? Why it’s not “ LIE down”?
A:
I guess it's referring to the fact that they both are close.
when they both find themselves on the floor,

she "lays down" her heart "against" his.

the verb here can refer to the expression " to lay down against "
and it means " she leans on him "
( her body is close.enough to touch his body)
and (they could feel their hearts are beating because they are close. )

she was close enough
to "push him" beneath her
and to " murmur against " his neck ( "against" means in front of his neck, close to it ).

lie down makes sense as well but the context to me looks more suitable for " lay down against " .
