    "J'ai envie" ("avoir envie de quelque chose") is very similar to "je veux" ("vouloir quelque chose" no "de" here). It doesn't mean "I send" in any case.

    "J'ai envie" is a bit more personal, passionate than "Je veux".
    "J'avais envie" is closer to "I desire" than "Je veux".


    Hope this helps :)
