Why did I lose on time when the opponent doesn't have enough material to mate?

It's about this game lichess.org/pxaMkONtxOiC . I lost on time even though the opponent only had 1 bishop which is certainly not enough material to conduct a checkmate. Is it an error in the Lichess system? It should have been a draw.
