It's another way to express it, by using the inflections of על. It's like saying: it's on me to do it - it's my duty - I have to do it. It comes in the form על+<infinitive>. For example:
"עליי ללכת" = I have to go
"על המלך לעזור לנו" = The king has to help us
I'd also add that it's rather formal. (And just a small correction - it's חייב)
