Okay, I understand all that. I do appreciate that she made the effort to be what she thinks Ben wants and is/has always been torn trying to find the balance of her internal Lucy and Jessie, and I see how the lyrics support that.

However, I don't agree that Phyllis has never thought of Sally and what she might mean to Ben, because pretty much from the moment Ben and Sally see each other, their "romance" is rekindled and off and running. Is Phyllis unaware of that? I guess it's possible that she's never thought of Sally (though Phyllis did "steal" Ben from her and might also have a lot of regrets about that, given how the marriage turned out). Is it only now, seeing Ben the past that Ben wishes he could have held on to, thus emphasizing her terrible marriage and unhappiness, that Phyllis wishes the "Sally" part of herself hadn't been buried?
