   Her body's a difficult sister, and she loves her
   And hides her somewhere in herself safe from harm
   She's barely coasting into a paycheque, stuck on empty

add this to the end:

She shoplifts some Christmas gifts and a bracelet for herself and considers phoning home, has some quarters in her hand

The last part of the chorus ("and so hopelessly hopeful") should be akin to the Bridge 1 part, I think:

4~ 7~
4~ 7~
2~ 5~
