Synonyms of "Lift" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between lift up your head and tilt your head back and bow your head and move your head forward ?
A: When you are looking down to your feet, someone might say "lift up your head" so that you are looking forward & everyone can see your face again.

When someone says to "tilt your head back", the person wants you to move your head so you are looking at the ceiling/sky or look up in a comfortable position.

Bowing your head can mean the little nod you do when you say "sorry" or "excuse me", or to tilt your head down so you look at the floor/your feet.

Move your head forward could possibly mean that the person wants you to lean towards them. Or for you to literally move your head forward.


Examples:

Lift up your head:

-"Why are you looking down? Lift up your head."

-"Don't be sad, lift up your head and look at me."

Tilt your head back:

-"Tilt your head back! Look at all the clouds in the sky!"

-"Tilt your head back and enjoy!"

Bow your head:

-"You should be bowing your head down in shame."

-"Bow your head when we pray."

Move your head forward:
(this is very uncommon for me to hear)

-"Move your head forward just a bit so you can hear."
