Bonjour Ruba, "Veux" is from "vouloir" which means "to want." "Envie" is used in the expression "avoir envie" which means "to feel like."

Bonjour Ruba, You might have encountered the sentence "J'ai envie de toi" meaning "I want you" in a loving way in French. "Je te veux" in that context would be much less romantic!
