   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
   Her blue eyes frozen green in the low-lit ATM

add this to the end:

E5 E5 G#5 G#5 C#5 C#5 B5 A5 x3

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

But she sits down on the sidewalk and bites her bottom lip and spends the afternoon willing traffic lights to change

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~
