Por que usou "to" nesse caso: want you to know

Eu vi recentemente essa frase no Facebook: I want you to know.
Pelo que pesquisei significa: Eu quero que você saiba. É isso mesmo? Se for, qual a necessidade de "to" nesse caso se ele significa para ou passa o verbo para o infinitivo? Agradeço a ajuda de vocês.

Dicas:

Com "want", "need" e "would like" as construções são assim, com "to", neste contexto de formação. São assim porque fazem parte das características naturais do idioma. Aprenda, faça uso e siga adiante. Confira exemplos.

I want you to stay here. [Eu quero que você fique aqui.]
I want you to tell me everything. [Eu quero que você conte-me tudo.]
I want her to help. [Eu quero que ela ajude.]
He wants me to work here. [Ele quer que eu trabalhe aqui.]
She wants you to go. [Ela quer que você vá.]
John and Mary want their children to study. [John e Mary querem que os filhos estudem.]

I need you to know. [Eu preciso que você saiba.]
I need you to stay here. [Eu preciso que você fique aqui.]
I need her to come. [Eu preciso que ela venha.]
He needs you to help. [Ele precisa que você ajude.]

I would like you to know. [Eu gostaria que você soubesse.]
I would like you to come to the party. [Eu gostaria que você viesse à festa.]
He would like her to stay. [Ele gostaria que ela ficasse.]
She would like John to stop. [Ela gostaria que o John parasse.]

Hi guys!

Answering Ariel's question, normally we use the structure with "want" and "need" such as:

(Subject) want(s) + (somebody) to V (inf.)

prepare: The teacher wants us to prepare for the test next week.
pick up: John wants his brother to pick him up after school.
issue: We want the store to issue us a refund.
cut: He wants Mary to cut his hair.
teach: They want me to teach them how to bake bread.
come: I want him to come here.
help: Do you want me to help you with the dishes?

But other verbs that can be used in this pattern instead of “want”:

V + (somebody) to V (inf.)

advise: The professor advised Tom to take three semesters of physics.
ask: We are asking them to switch their appointment to Thursday.
expect: I expect my students to study diligently and work hard.
persuade: Mrs. Jones persuaded her sick husband to stay home from work.
teach: My brother taught me to whistle.

However, the usage above is really less common than the pair want/need. ;)

Cheers!
