  • It’s time
    from English Grammar Today
    We can use the expression it’s time + subject + past verb form to refer to the present moment:

    Gosh! It’s almost midnight. It’s time we went home.

    Not: It’s time we go home.

    It’s time with a verb in the to-infinitive form can refer to the speaker and the listener together:

    Come on. It’s time to start packing. We have to leave in two hours. (or It’s time we started packing.)
