I am nothing but desire and passion

It depends on context but it probably means that whoever is saying it is refering to himself as someone that is full of passion and desire, these being the only type of feelings he/she is able to experience...
he/she is nothing more than an entity full of desire and passion...
something like that...

Hope this helps!

I'm overwhelmed by desire and passion

la phrase française devrait etre= je ne suis plus que désir et passion
le "plus" means that you're overwhelmed, that your former identity, psychological state is now coming down to those sole emotions
hope it helps

"I am nothing but desire and passion"

"I am nothing except desire and passion"
"I am only desire and passion"

In fact, this is very bad French and it sounds like it is actually a translation from English, from the first sentence above. Proper French would have been written:

"Je ne suis que désir et passion."

Hope this helps.
