Marvelous example of the :isl: Icelandic love for impersonal verbs.

1. Ég þarf peninga. Mig vantar peninga.
2. Ég vil [eiga] peninga. Mig langar í peninga.
3. Mig skortir peninga. [Mig vantar peninga.]

Image Zelsen:

Image
zazhje av nje smje.
Something compels me to obtain money.
must obtain (subject marker) currency.

Image
sova nje smje
I want money.
like (subject marker) currency.

Image
ko-sh' nje smje
I do not have money.
NEG have (subject marker) currency.

In the first sentence I use "zazhje" because I am assuming the need for money comes from outside, e.g. you need to pay the rent. In the case of money there's not really much use for the personal verb but there is a difference.

For the second sentence, there are two types of "want", essentially they can be called material or immaterial, though that's arguable. For your basic material wants, "sova", which can also mean "to like", will do the trick. The other wants are phrased a bit more intricately, you use the verb "as" which deals with states of emotional being and the phrase "d ju" which is roughly "for desire".

K'ūthā warīa.
[Kot ū-thā waria]
[1.SG have-NEED/WANT money]
"I need to have money." (using "K'ūthō waria" would be the "want" variant)

Kot m'ū waria.
[kot mīa ū waria]
[1.SG NEG have money]
"I don't have money".

A- I need money.
B- I want money.
C- I lack money.

Ilian
A: Mé ádamáergytta de.
mé áda-má-urgit-to** de
[ˈmeː ˈaː.dɐ.maːˌeɾ.gʲit.tɐ de]
1 money-GEN*-need-ACC have

B: Mé ádamánaráta de.
mé áda-má-nará-ta de
[ˈmeː ˈaː.dɐ.maːˌna.ɾaː.tɐ de]
1 money-GEN*-desire-ACC have

C: Mé ádata detr.
mé áda-ta de-tr
[ˈmeː ˈaː.dɐ.tɐ ˈde.tr]
1 money-ACC have-NEG

Grammar Notes:
*The marker / can also function like an adjective marker rather than a pure genitive, which is what it's doing in this case.
**Because of vowel harmony, one might expect ódomóurgitto. This is wrong, though, because the verb of the sentence is ergittade; orthographically, the verb here is split but still has to agree in harmony with the subject. However, one can instead write it as Mé ádamá ergyttade and keep the verb intact. Mé ádamáergyttade is also correct, but disfavored It all boils down to personal preference.
And I'll dance with you in Vienna,
I'll be wearing a river's disguise;
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thigh...
