Why are all the phenyl protons in benzyl alcohol equivalent in the ¹H-NMR spectrum?

Below is a $\ce{^1H}$ Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrum for benzyl alcohol. The hydrogen in the alcohol group gives rise to a unique signal. The two hydrogens in $\ce{CH2}$ give rise to a unique signal with around twice the signal area. What I don't understand is why all hydrogens in the phenyl group are equivalent. My guess would have been there would be 3 signals from the phenyl ring. One pair of $\ce{H}$ that are equally distant from the methanol, another pair that is also equally distant, and last, a single hydrogen that is the furthest away from the methanol. Clearly this is not the case, and the 5 hydrogen give rise to a single signal only.

Why? What is a good way to think about equivalent and non-equivalent atoms in NMR spectrometry? I would rather avoid rules like the one that says "if you can substitute the hydrogen with another atom and it gives the same compound, the hydrogens are equivalent". I would rather like an intuitive way to think about it, if it's possible!

The three signals are very close in chemical shift, and have a strong coupling. If you have heard about $$AB$$ spin systems, where the CS difference is similar to the coupling constant, which make the outer two lines of the two doubletts become weaker, and the innner two stronger and move closer to one another: This is an $$AB_2C_2$$ system. The inner lines coalesce completely, and the outer lines become an unshapely foot around the central line.
