Well, it needs to be kept cold, too, or it will foam. Maybe if it's really, really cold it'll foam less.
I have some tubing from McMaster-Carr I use for soda (it was $.15 cents a food!) and it's pretty rigid in a circle so it just coils up on top of the keg. If you want to serve it with short lines, chilling it more might help and try pushing it with as little pressure on the keg as possible- just enough to push it out.
You still might have some foaming, though, because of the high amount of co2 getting "knocked out" of the soda on the way to the glass. When you dispense a highly carbed beverage through a short hose, it's like shaking the soda up in a way. The soda bounces around the line and comes out like a firehose.
