    So yeah, what the hell is the difference between the two; Save and Safe?

    Damn, short post.

    Save means take someone/thing from danger.

    Safe means someone/thing is out of danger.

    For a quick and dirty explanation of one aspect of the meanings. Sure someone else can go more in-depth.

    There are more definitions of course...

    Save - verb (So, did you save the day?)

    Safe - adjective or noun (I keep my things safe in a safe.)
