If you think you might come to California
I think you should

from Counting Crows – A Long December Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It is important to note that Adam Duritz was dating Courteney Cox at the time (thus why she is in the video) so this line could refer to 1) Jennifer (the friend) being in the hospital (which to Duritz isn’t California, but rather it’s own separate place) and him wanting her to return to a normal state of being 2) Courtney Cox being on the road and Duritz wanting her to come back to California

I like to think the line refers to the former though
