[SDL] Very quick SDL_TTF question

Is it possible to have multi-line surfaces with SDL_TTF?
I went through the documentation at the SDL_TTF page, and they only show a
"Hello World" example.
Here's the gist of what I'd like to do:
SDL_Surface *textSur; //text surface
SDL_Color fontcolor; //color for the text
oStream << score ;
theText="Score: " + oStream.str();
oStream << lives ;
theText+="\nLives: " + oStream.str();
This doesn't properly go down a line, however. It ends up giving me something
that looks like this:
Score: 21391\█Lives: 3
Is there some way I can get it to print out multiple lines without having to
have a different surface for every line? I'd imagine there is, but I don't know
what to do.
