Broadway Games: More 2000's Tony-winning Lyrics

Last week's game proved to be quite popular! Seems all you show tunes fans enjoy a challenge. So here are 5 more (no repeats from last week, either!). Oh! And the answers to last week's game are at the bottom. 
Good luck! 

Broadway Games:
More 2000's 
Tony-winning Lyrics

Here's how it works: Below are lyrics from a song that is part a Tony Award-winning Best Score from 2000 - 2019 - anything from Aida Hadestown. Naming the show may prove difficult enough, but show us how much of a musical theater master you are by also naming the song title, lyricist and what character(s) sang it.

Remember: Each will come from a Tony-winning score. Also, the gentleman in the picture above does not  figure into this week's game.

1.     "I don't wanna wear this no more.
        Play the saucy Swiss miss no more.
        Blow my signature 'kiss' no more."

Song Title:        

2.     "There's a town I call home
        where the streets are paved with soul.
        Down on Beale, there's a honkey-tonk bar,
        hear the wail of the blues guitar,
        have a beer and drop a dime
        in the blind man's jar."

Song Title:        

3.     "I can't tell you I know what the answer will be.
        It's impossible.
        But this thing, this is bigger than what we can see.
        This is destiny.
        We are tied, we are locked, we are bound;
        This will not be reversed or unwound."

Song Title:        

4.     "Stick a pin in a map of the desert.
        Build a road to the middle of the desert.
        Pour cement on the spot in the desert.
        That's Bet Hatikvah."

Song Title:        

5.     "I only run the toilet
        In this part of town, you see.
        So, if you've got to go,
        You've got to go through me."

Song Title:
